“It’s ironic, but until you can free those final monsters within the jungle of yourself, your life, your soul is up for grabs.”  Rona Barrett

Our second to last day here on this beautiful paradise found us walking through the Limahuli Botanical Gardens on the North Shore of Kauai.   These gardens are built upon an ancient Hawaiian community.  They’ve done an amazing job preserving and showcasing many of the indigenous plant species, as well as many others that were introduced over the years.  

The tour today was self guided – which meant we took four hours to go about a mile!  It’s a nice wandering trail that is a nice hike up the mountain to a beautiful vista of the ocean, and then a nice meandering path back down to the bottom.  It was completely different from the tour we took the other day at Kauai Botanical Gardens, and very well worth our effort.  We took tons and tons of photos.  

I’ll be posting a few of the photos on my other blog: Me’n My D800e.  

The weather co-operated as well . . . it was windy but didn’t rain on us once.  At least not until we arrived back at the Villa’s.

“Fear less, hope more, eat less, chew more, whine less, breathe more, talk less, say more, hate less, love more, and good things will be yours.”  Swedish Proverb

We had great plans today to tour the McBride Botanical Gardens in Poipu, Kauai.  We woke up to dark, stormy skies.  It had stormed all night long with stretches of heavy rain.  We hoped that perhaps it was a bit calmer and clearer on the south part of the Island, as it so often can be.  However when we arrived at the Gardens, the tours had been closed due to wind gusts up to 50mph.  

Instead, we drove around to a few spots that we’d visited before.  

My shot for today is at the Spouting Horn.  The surf is quite high right now so the Spouting Horn was giving off a good display.  I decided to get away from the crowds at the lookout, and walked down around the end of the fence and on to the lava rocks to get this better vantage point.  

The sun even came out for a few minutes!
