Hawaii: the Fern Grotto

Our first full day in Kauai, while driving around looking for the local Starbucks (yes, there was one - don't blame me I didn't build it), we took a detour and decided to check out the Fern Grotto.

We took this boat on an adventure up the Wailua River.

Welcome to Fern Grotto.

The Grotto was destroyed by hurricanes a few years ago and it is slowly growing back to its previous glory.

Brightly colored flowering plants were everywhere - the scenery around the Grotto was more impressive than the Grotto itself.

This cat had two different colored eyes, and was a little bit creepy looking. We ran into some weird feral cats in Kauai.

Hello, pretty.
