Kaua'i, Waimea Canyon, Spouting Horn

My recent (April 23-May 8) cruise to Hawaii with the lovely Robin, celebrating forty years of marriage (and forty-three years as a couple!) included a stop in the port of Nawiliwili, Kaua'i (above).
Our Kaua'i excursion was to Waimea Canyon, billed as "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific." Well, we've been to the Grand Canyon, and this couldn't be anything close. Right?
Wrong. It was spectacular. Even a panorama photo doesn't record the breathtaking beauty of the spot, with waterfalls, brilliant colors, and seemingly endless vistas. I could post a dozen photos and still not convey a fraction of the experience.
On our ride back to the ship from Waimea Canyon, we made another stop--at "Spouting Horn" (above), a natural waterspout created by lava tubes on the beach. Fun.
We returned to the ship after an all-too-short stay in Kaua'i. It was raining as the ship cast off, but the rain seemed to respectfully stop at the port's breakwater, which I tried to capture above. We were sorry to say goodbye to the striking emerald green beauty of Kaua'i.
