It's not only lush greenery and bright flowers that make Kauai a magic place.
I like its small towns with their rustic charm.
The last two pictures were taken in Hanapepe. It is called Kauai's Biggest Little Town. It used to be the hot spot in the 1800s with its popularity being supported by local agriculture. The town was formed by Chinese rice growers. Even though the town's decline began in the 70s and 80s it was 1992's Hurricane Iniki that landed the final blow to Hanapepe. It still manages to stay alive with a handful of artisan shops and galleries. http://www.hawaii-guide.com/
I love this bench in front of one of the stores!
