Twelve of us went on a river kayaking trip up the Wailua river. Kate’s friend Annie hooked us up with the trip. A handful of years ago Annie gave life the middle finger and moved to Kauai and starting working with the kayaking group. She was very generous in giving us a discount for the trip. After kayaking up the river, we took a short hike to some waterfalls that are only accessible via the river/hike.
After the trip we all rushed back to Princeville for Mike and Ally’s rehearsal dinner. There was an open bar and taco buffet, so no complaints there. After dinner the group headed to a small field on the grounds of the hotel that sits right on the edge of a cliff. Prayer lanterns were set ablaze and released into the night. Cindy (Ally’s mom and chief wedding/vacation coordinator) said it had been cleared with the hotel, but eventually security came and they were so fucking pissed at us. It was pretty hilarious.
