Chickens are everywhere on Kauai. We found out the tour guides all have a standing joke... Please take some home with you! Lol. I guess the story of the chickens is there were some wild chickens descended from the original birds(moas, Hawaiian for chicken:) brought by the Polynesians. When Filipino folks came to Hawaii they brought their fighting chickens with them. A few years ago when a hurricane struck the islands everyone brought their best chickens inside and the rest got blown all over the island. Now there are lots of wild chickens everywhere. Since most folks can't tell the difference between a regular chicken and a moa all the chickens are protected. :)
So, we were all dressed up to go shopping and have dinner in Hanalei. We decided to have a nice walk on this beach before we went. We got all the way to the end of the beach ( a fair ways from where we took these pictures) and it started to pour! :-) First of all, we are native Oregonians, need I say more? Secondly, we both LOVE the rain. So we didn't mind getting soaked in the least. We had our waterproof camera bag with us, so both cameras were protected. We just went back to our room(about a 15 minute drive) and changed clothes before going on.
