it rained hard all through the night sunday night, and continued up until noon on monday morning. we were worried that our helicopter ride (!!!!), scheduled to depart at 12:45, would be cancelled due to weather. as we drove to lihue, hopeful that we could fly, we noticed waterfalls all over the mountainsides, like this one:
it stopped raining just before we arrived at the helipad. we got into the (door-less!) helicopter and the pilot told us were were going to see lots of waterfalls from the air, due to the rain. and we certainly saw lots of waterfalls!
the helicopter ride was just unreal. the second we landed and got out, we both turned to each other with these incredulous faces of delight and talked immediately about how it was worth every penny. it was absolutely incredible.
one of the coolest things i’ve ever done, for sure. loved every second.
we went south to stay in poipu for the next couple of days. here’s what we woke up to tuesday morning – the view from our balcony at sunrise.
i mean, common. kaua’i is out of control.
