Clouds and more clouds...
Then we went down to a beach to do some snorkeling. I didn't think I would be able to put my face in the water and breath like that. Too claustrophobic for this girl. And, indeed the first time I put my face in the water I came flying back up after about one second. But I tried again. After a couple of steadying breaths I spotted a fish...and I was off :-) I chased fish all around that pool (we were in a rocked in kiddie area) and had a blast. Nate got a huge kick out of watching me too.
After our little detour we stopped at Hanalei valley lookout and took in the view for a while.
These are taro fields. We got the kids a book called Old Makana Had a Taro Farm. It's a song to the tune of Old McDonald and is full of Hawaiian names for animals and the planting and pulling of taro.
We loaded up our stuff and dashed of to the airport in Lihue. There we proceeded to wait for hours and go through security umpteen times ect...We had a 'red eye' flight and got home Sunday morning. Here's my handsome honey in the (San Francisco???) airport after breakfast Sunday morning. (Oh, my memory is so terrible these days!! I'm not even old yet. I blame pregnancy for this problem...)
