Sky High Light in Kauai

The last few days have been incredible. On Monday we arrived in Kauai, making Hawaii our 50th state visited. Since then we’ve explored, hiked and even spent time at the beach (geocaching). But the highlight has undoubtedly been a flight around the island in a biplane.

So imagine my excitement when all three photo challenges I regularly follow provided words (or a phrase in one case) that perfectly mesh together with my experiences of the last four days. The themes are as follows: Ailsa from Where’s My Backpack? chose ‘Sky‘, Sue from A Word In Your Ear picked ‘High‘, while the Daily Post‘s weekly offering is Let There Be Light‘.

Here’s how I again combined all three…

Coming in to land at Lihue airport, Kauai, at sunset. At this point I suppose we'd technically only seen Hawaii, not been there!
