We were up early again today and headed up the Wailua River to Secret Falls. It was a peaceful trip up the river. There is a little side creek off the river that takes you to a trail. It was about a mile hike through the woods to a wonderful waterfall. We were lucky to be the only ones there. By the time we started back...a lot of tours were heading that way. It was very nice to have the place to ourselves. We stopped by Fern Grotto on our way back...this might have been a great place years ago, but not worth much time now.

We shopped a little in Koloa, walked along the cliffs near the Hyatt, looked at Spouting Horn, went to a coffee plantation and found Glass Beach. The sand is made up of tiny pieces of glass. Very unique. We had drinks and pupus at Scotty's Bar-B-Que...their ribs were very good (melt in our mouth...but expensive) and we had a wonderful view of the ocean. We went home and had fresh fish for dinner.
