I've been working my way around the north shore of Kauai, and I like it. It rains every day, but that isn't much trouble, you just close up the hatches and wait for it to stop. There are a lot of rivers that run down a steep slope and I've walked up two of them, to nice waterfalls. There are a few lava tubes as well, I have been staying near a beach called "tunnels" the last few nights and it has a big tube that ends in the beach. I ventured down a little bit of the Na Pali coast, which is the un-roaded part of this island, a "lost" coast... But I found it all right, and there are lots of people that hike the trails, so it has been found many times over. On the way i saw this "new" bird.
