Waterfalls & Rainforests in Hawaii

Paradise found, as you stand and watch the hypnotic grace of the cascading falls you may find yourself wondering what it was like a few hundred years ago before the age of cars and planes, before Cook sailed into Kealakekua Bay.

Hawaii is the most beautiful place we have lived. We have lived on 4 continents and 8 countries and often imagined combining all the best places we've lived into one wonderful home. Well we found it at last! 
Most of these photo's were taken by our beautiful and talented eldest daughter.

Ocean bays edged with secret gardens can be explored along the Big Island's shores.

We follow trails through this paradise, forest birds serenade from a canopy of tree ferns, orchids ramble up trees fuzzed with moss and we remember what really matters in life.

Little streams tip-toe across the forest floor with tinkling laughter. 

The rain forest has conveniently placed umbrella's 'cos it rains a lot here!  The guys were very gallant and saved their skins while the girls got rained on!

 Rain sprinkled flowers delight us as we explore.
