Opaeka'a Falls

The first landmark visited on our Kauai trip. Opaeka'a Falls is located along the Wailua River, on the eastern side of Kauai. Prior to the visit, I had written in my notes that it would be an "eye-popping photo op," but I'm not sure how those photos are being taken, since visitors can only get as far as the photo below shows (without zoom).

Try to spot the waterfall...

The name of the falls means 'rolling shrimp,' dating back to the time when native freshwater shrimp were so plentiful that they could be seen tumbling down the falls (thank you Wikipedia).

You can cross the highway to get a view of Wailua River State Park. In 2009 I kayaked down that river and hiked to Secret Falls, but passed this time.

A walk around Lake Elizabeth

Last night around 4:30pm:

^ That's how close I was able to get to the seagull before s/he finally flew away.

Kauai (through iPhone)

I'm planning on doing more detailed write-ups of my Kauai trip at some point, hopefully before my memory of the trip completely evaporates. In the meantime, here are some pictures I took with my iPhone. Enjoy my irregularly cropped photos!

I drew a bird wing

I'm rusty. Hopefully that gets fixed as I do some more illustrations in the next couple weeks for some upcoming Tavern Books covers :)
