DvH2010 01 Kalihiwai Bay, Kauai, Hawai'i
The category 4 hurricane also brushed past O'ahu, where it battered the Wai'anae Coast, laying waste to the southwestern shore. In all, Iniki caused an estimated $1.8 billion in damage.
Kaua'i, the Garden Isle, where the legends of the Menehune abound. Kaua'i the oldest island in the Hawaiian chain and often called the Garden Isle because of its endless beauty. It is a place as close to the Garden of Eden as one can find. Perhaps the sculptural masterpiece is the Na Pali Coast accessible only by boat, helicopter or foot. Here the scenery is so magnificent it defies description.
The only thing that can compare to the natural beauty of this island is the beauty of the people of Kaua'i with their genuine friendliness and spirit of Aloha.
For my dear friends who taught me the true fairy tales of olden Kaua'i.
