|We cruised to the island of Kauai - the Garden Isle - for a 2 day stay. Our excursion today took us to the Waimea Canyon called the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific". We also took a riverboat cruise on the Wailua River to the Fern Grotto, the sight of many weddings. Along the way we were serenaded with Hawaiian music. Our last stop was at Opaekaa Falls. Hawaii has a feral chicken problem. They are everywhere. No one eats them because the saying goes - to cook a Hawaiian feral chicken, place the chicken and a lava rock in a pot, cover with water and bring to a boil. When the lava rock is tender, so is the chicken.
