(Scroll to see the flowers!) The Mcbryde botanical garden on Kauai's South Shore was an incredible experience. We were two of six total people wandering through the huge grounds - the only sound we could hear was birds and the ocasional bullfrog. It's an arc of endangered tropical trees and plants, plus medicinal and food plants brought to the island thousands of years ago by Polynesian navigators. So romantic and beautiful, we left with our minds simultaneously cleared and our hearts filled.
