Kauai - Day 2 continued

After the amazing plane ride we still had a few hours to we headed to Duke's to have some lunch and have some of the Hula Pie that we had heard so much about.  The food did not disappoint...the view was pretty good as well since it sits right on a beach and oh my word...the Hula Pie....YUM!
Now doesn't that just look like heaven on a plate...seriously...macadamia nut ice cream on a chocolate crust...with whipped fudge and macadamia nuts sprinkled on top...and the only place you can get it as far as I know is at Duke's in Hawaii.....this alone is a reason to go back.  Oh and I'm sure that there are no calories involved at all.
We had to back on the ship by 1:30 since the ending to this awesome trip is a sail-by the Na'Pali Coastline and with having the aft balcony - we could hardly wait.  We had a couple of whales that decided to see us off which just put the cherry on top of a perfect trip.  We even had one breach right off the back of the ship...I didn't get him in the air but here he is hitting the water.
The crowning point of the trip...really.
Then we reached the Na'Pali Coast....I would love to be able to take a smaller boat ride to this area the size of these cliffs is just without words

Can you see the face?

Our very last sunset in Hawaii - at least for this trip.
