Beach day: snorkeling, Hawaiian Green Turtles, Hawaiian Monk Seals..and another sunset.

We watched the sunset at Kē'ē Beach which is at the end of the road on the north side of Kauai.
The views from the light house at Kilauea Point are amazing. The ocean was really churning and sending spray 100 feet into the air when it crashed into the rocks.

This wide beach near Kekaha has very soft sand.
Waimea Canyon is sometimes called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. You can see why from this picture.
Sometimes the view is underwhelming.
On one of our hikes we encountered hunters looking for "mountain pigs". This is one of their GPS-monitored hunting dogs.
