Rebecca is on Faces of Beauty today! Make sure you stop in and say hi 🙂
Long time no talk, right? I got a little caught up in my vacation the past couple days…turns out it’s hard to blog when you wear yourself out during the day 🙂
The third day of our vacation in Kauai we did something I’ve never done before: kayaking!
I was so looking forward to it and believe me – it did NOT disappoint! I don’t have any photos of us kayaking (cameras + water = no bueno), but above is a shot of the Menehune Fishpond right next to the Hule’ia River we kayaked. Y’all, it was just the most incredible place! Nate and I are officially buying a kayak to play with in our local lakes so we can get our fix from now on 🙂
The tour was also complete with a hike through the jungle, something that I was a little scared about but turned out to be amazing (why do I doubt these things…?)
So, since I am always one to be on the edge of breaking news, there’s a Pirates of the Caribbean 4 coming out in May 2011, and a LOT of it was shot in the area we hiked through! The pond below is in the movie, which means that I’ve been swimming in the same water as Johnny Depp.
Yes, you can have my autograph. Self-addressed and stamped envelopes only, please and thank you.
Nate did a killer running man super-flip (minus the flip part) into the water. Style points = 1,000,000.
The ONLY thing I would have changed about the day was the fact that we kayaked out, hiked, and then rode a boat back in…but I would have loved to have kayaked back! Such a great workout and so much fun. I need a kayak. Immediately.
I think one of my favorite things about the tours that we went on was the stories…legends passed down from hundreds of year…that run rampant on the island. It makes everything just that much more romantic and fun!
