Helicopter Ride

Tuesday morning packed up to leave the Hanalei town on north shore of Kauai and go to Poipu Palms condos on the south side of the island, in Poipu. We took a walk on the Hanalei Beach and said goodbye to our introduction to life in Hawaii.
Then it was time to go on to the helicopter flight of a lifetime. One of the most exciting parts for me was to see the crescent shape of Hanalei Bay, and Hanalei Pier from the air. The numerous waterfalls in the canyon were incredible, but what would you expect from a place where rainfall averages 450 inches per year?

Lovely trip but glad to be touching the ground again!
