a day at the {botanical gardens}

Aloha friends!  Today I'm sharing a few snaps of our trip to the McBryde Botanical Gardens, which is in Kauai's Lawai valley.  Some fun facts we just learned was that they just completed filming Pirates of the Carribean a week ago in parts of the garden, so we just missed seeing Johnny Depp {bummer!}.  Sidenote - we did have a star sighting though - we saw Pierce Brosnan on the beach when we were up in Princeville!  Ok - back to our trip to the was beautiful and lush as you can imagine. Here's a look at the beach that they may have filmed in the movie:
And lastly, I put together a little collage of the exotic plants we saw in the gardens.  if you click on the picture below, you'll get to see a larger view.  Enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by today!
