Ever watched the TV series "Fantasy Island"? If so, you're probably old enough to remember stories of visitors being flown each week into a hidden magical island resort. At the start of every episode, the character of Tattoo would ran up the bell tower and shout the popular catchphrase, "The plane, the plane" to announce the arrival of the new guests. The shows were filmed with the gigantic 113-foot Wailua Falls as a backdrop.
Although it provides a difficult access by foot to the floor of the falls itself, the falls is easily seen from the road up above.
As we continued our journey, we headed along the Kuhio Highway along the eastern coasts and ended up in the Kealia area. We stopped for a bit of history of Kauai's plantation heritage, just by an old sugar mill across a small community post office.

|Palm Trees everywhere too!|

Since we loved the beach so much, we made another stop at Anahola Bay before lunch.
