We left Oahu on Tuesday after a glorious visit to island hop by plane to the island of Kauai, which is actually the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands. It is only 562 square miles but it is far less developed. It is roughly five million years old and often called the “Garden Island” for its pristine beaches and rain forests.
We hope to explore the island over the next six days by boat along the coasts as well as hiking into the interior. We arrived in the evening in time for one of the islands spectacular sunsets. We are located in Koloa, Hawaii at the bottom tip of the island.
Here are a few pics from our first day:
