Spring Break 2013 - Zip-Lining and Boat Tour

Cory's dad is here visiting us!  He got here on Thursday and we have been busy ever since.  The first thing we did was go to the Ku I Ka Lono hula performance.  Last year it was on Oahu but this year it was on Kauai.  We saw several school's perform hula (including mine).

Over the weekend we went zip lining and on a boat tour. Cory's dad even went on the zip-line upside down (on purpose).  The boat tour didn't go to the Na Pali coast like usual because of dangerous ocean conditions, so we went to the south side of the island.  We saw lots of dolphins, turtles, manta ray, and whales.

We had something pretty unique happen with the whales, two of them were following our boat. According to the crew, the shadow of our boat resembles a whale because it is the same size. The whales that were following us thought that we were another whale.  They said the whales were "showing off" to try to get our attention.  The whales literally breached in front of us at least 15 times, if not more.  They also waved their fins at us, it was pretty cute.  Even the crew members were out taking pictures (and they are on the boat every day).

Here is a link to a video -- more to come later :)
