Letters Home #6

Hi girls,

Woke up this morning for our last day here to find grey skies. I guess that means it is time to go home. We have had perfectly sunny weather the whole time we have been here so I guess we got really lucky. The next few days are supposed to be overcast and wet.

Yesterday we went on a longer drive to check out to Waimea Canyon also known as the Grand Canyon of Hawaii. Beautiful scenery and we took lots of photos.

We went on a few hikes in the canyon that involved lots of climbing up.

We also hiked to the "highest swamp in the world." Although Kauai is in the middle of a pretty bad draught right now so it wasn't very swampy. The good news is that meant no mud to deal with. The bad news about that is that most of the waterfalls on the island are dried up waiting for some big rains so we didn't get to see those. There was one we were hoping to swim in today but it was completely dry.
We ended the day with a beautiful sunset on the beach.
We will be getting on the plane tonight after you are in bed and will be home tomorrow to meet you off the school bus. Can't wait to see you and give you lots of hugs and kisses!!

Mom and Dad

hi mom hi dad,
You're so lucky you got to go to the Grand Canyon of Hawaii. Seth and Gemma were just at the Grand Canyon of the U.S.
I miss you and I'm glad you're coming home soon.
Love, Maddie

Lisa, that last picture is heavenly! I want to be there! There is definitely NOT a drought going on here. The rain awaits you! Glad you are having fun though!

WOW. I really like the new format. It is very classy. I thought the other one was wonderful. The new one is sort of like the wall in your dining room. It sets off the pictures very effectively. Peggy
