On Monday, Nov. 7th, we went for a hike on Kalalau Trail. The weather had been raining sporadically many times daily since we arrived in Hanalei. We decided to brave getting wet again, see what we could see. We stopped often to take pictures as the trail had many beautiful views.

|Tom making his way to a small waterfall|
|Our daily rainbow|
|These little blue flowers were all along the trail|
Another couple asked us to take a picture of them--
then we asked them to take one of us
|Blue ocean and sky make awesome background|
|Ferns and foliage|
|Almost to the sandy beach|
|Some other people fording the stream we had to cross to get the the beach.|
|No swimming allowed here!|
|Back the same way we came - more beauty to behold -|
most likely a type of orchid
|A whispy pine tree - Australian Pine|
|Tiny white berries|
|Another viney plant climbing a tree|
|Looking back at Kalalau Beach where the trail ended|
|The distant peaks|
|It was sunny on the way back!|
At the end of the hike we bought a drink
of fresh coconut milk in the shell with a straw in it,
from a guy selling them off the back of his truck.
It was refreshing!
