Aloha Hawaii, Turtle Cave | My Family Travels

The moist, oatmeal colored sand; stuck to my feet, leaving a trail of footprints as I walked through the murky cave. Before we reached our destination, we had a strenuous hike down a two-hundred foot cliff.  As we reached the bottom of the cliff, we admired the radiant sun setting into the ocean line. The thick waves raced into the jet black rocks, sprinkling the ocean salt on our skin. We held onto the rocks as we made our way towards the hidden cave. The ocean tide pounded our bodies against the rocks making us lose balance. At last we made it; we had reached the cave entrance. Broken shells blended with the sand and made it a distasteful walk. My sight was blinded by darkness; there was no light to guide us. My heart beat accelerated, my adrenaline rushed, I became anxious for the sun’s warmth to illuminate my skin. My sister and I grasped onto one another in need of knowing someone was there. Our voices were a comfort. Time passed, from a distance, we gazed at the sun light beaming in through the other end. The cool ocean breeze invaded the cave. As we walked deep into the light my eyes became wide, amazed by nature, and life. Resting before our eyes were three round giant turtles. Their giant external, shield-like shells, as big as me, protected their scaly, rough textured skin. We walked towards the turtles amazed by their presence. As I kneeled down to pet the turtle, I was astonished by the variety of patterns that covered its unique shaped body. It was the most amazing thing I had ever witnessed. We soon had to leave since the water was rising. It took a while before we could reach light again; we held hands to guide one another. It was freezing; I felt the pieces of broken shells burying into my skin. The pain was almost unbearable; it felt like eternity to reach the other end of the turtle caves. At last we reached the beginning and made our way back to the very top of the rigid cliff. It was unforgettable; the pain was worth the adventure, even the thirty new mosquito bites.

Going to Kauai Hawaii was splendid. Several adventures were experienced. Beautiful memories were created. I recommend Kauai Hawaii for individuals, couples, and families. It really is a place to go to. Just remember to take sunscreen, and mosquito spray. In Hawaii there is a strong pulchritudinous sun and tons of mosquitos. If you are going on a hike remember to take two pairs of comfortable shoes. One pair for swimming purposes, so broken sea shells don’t hurt your feet like mine, and a pair that won’t let you slip. With that you are all set. Oh, don’t forget the camera!
