During A.D.500 - 900, polynesians from the Marquesas and Tahiti arrived on the islands. The islands of Hawaii are Kauai, Niihau, O'ahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, Kahoolawe and Hawai'i(the big island). In 1778, Captain James Cook landed 2 ships on Kaua'i. In 1842, the US recognized Hawai'i as an independent nation. in 1941, the US enters World War 11 following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and other O'ahu states. Hawii became the 50th state in 1959.

I got a chance to visit the 4 main islands of Hawaii. Kauai is the smallest of the 4 and the prettiest. Kaua'i someimes referred to as cow-eye is "The Garden Isle" due to its lush vegetation. It gets lots of rain especially in the winter months. The average day temp is 80 during the day.

Here are some pictures of this small island.

Thanks Sonu, Rdfan and Rishi. I had a nice time inspite of heavy rains. Hawaii is best in May. We booked a helicopter ride to Valcanoes, but due to heavy rains, the ride got cancelled. We used that to go over mountains in Maui.

here are more pictures

Laxmi Di, first of all a very happy new year to U n your family. Hope U had a great time in Hawaii, U have posted wonderful pics. the resolution is also great, what kind of camera U have, the snaps have come out quiet good. The place is fantastic, it's on my radar for some time , let's see when I can go there. I had planned it last year but instead took a cruise to the eastern caribeans and Perte Rico which was also beautiful (St. Thomas/St John, Dominica, barbados and Aruba) , will post our pics some time.

Sanjib,

Thanks. I use cannon powershot S2 IS. I am an amateur photographer. I love photography and go out of my way to hit shots. Have a very happy new year. We went to Bahamas on a cruise. Loved it.

Jayant,

I would really like to meet you. I thought you were in India at that time. I want to see Fiji, Tahiti and other islands. Why don't you make a trip to US? Please post some photos of your island. Love to see it.

the Iolani palace in Honolulu. It is the only royal residence in the US

The Buddha temple in Maui. We went inside. It is kept very clean. Run by Japanese. Found peace inside.
