Workin' On a Railroad

One concern about taking Miles to Hawaii for two weeks was whether he would suffer from train deprivation. After all, he had to leave all his Thomas trains behind.

We needn't have worried.

The Kauai Plantation Railway provided a much-needed dose of the young man's favorite transportation mode.

Just in case that wasn't interesting enough, there was wildlife to feed along the way.

But Miles was clear on his agenda: "I want to drive it!"

He was careful to keep his engine clean.

Our journey next took us up the Wailua River. (Did we mention that Kauai is rather lush?)

Near the source, we paid a visit to the Iraivan Temple, an outpost of Hinduism in the mid-Pacific.

Despite his promises to behave, we fear that Miles may have disturbed the monks in their meditations.

He was a bit more in his element at Bubba's Burgers.

Speaking of Bubbas....
