Thanks Jig; I'm not quite there yet... Still "punching a clock" so to speak.
That was . Very, very ! Sounded like a swarm of angry bees for the most part (except for the sound of the surf) but the picture quality was spectacular! What a beautiful place.
Pssst....that was Stan.

Welcome back man! You've brought me out of my bear-cave with this post, I think it's time to make my own since I've been up to lots of happenings.
Egads!!! My humble apologies... Still getting my bearings here again!
<@Stan: I'm waiting for that bribe for every @mention you offered!>
Thanks Lauren... The North Coast of Kaua'i is just gorgeous. The wife & I were eating lunch in a downtown Hanalei cafe when the usual afternoon shower appeared (just like sprinklers!) When it finished, and the sun reappeared in a Mighty Way, I saw all these "tourists" across the street recording video with their phones. I thought to myself: "Hmm, MySelf. What are they recording?"
I ran across the street and saw the mountains behind us. There were at least 11 major waterfalls gushing down the slopes! I ran for the drone residing in the trunk of our rental and launched it immediately!
<sigh> I so enjoy Hawai'i....
Welcome back, WyreNut. Been far too long.
WyreNut - where are the videos? At least upload them to YouTube & send us a link. You can't just describe something like that & talk about your drone without letting us in on it!

Wyrenut, I had friends who lived in Hanapepe from 1978-1985. Their daughter was born there in late 1978. The husband was a trust fund baby so the expensive lifestyle left them unfazed and they really were "living the dream". They came back to visit Atlanta in Feb 1979 and flew into one of the worst (up until that time) paralyzing snowstorm events in the city's history. The city was a frozen nitemare. Their luggage made it to the ATL airport 5 days later , leaving them to cope (at our house) with a 6-month old baby with only the contents of the diaper bag for 5 (long! ) days, along with several other people who got trapped while coming for dinner. Good times, sleeping on the floor.
Ok, here are a few stills from the video. This was a personal record for distance, and became a bit nerve-wracking! I was over 700 meters away, and about 200' up. I'm looking on my various storage units for the video...
These are taro fields - the tuber that natives make Poi from!
