Okay, so this could easily be used by Dave Letterman's panel of writers as fodder for the Ten Most Foolish Things to do on Kauai.
It had been an exceptionally wet wintry season on the Garden Isle this year, so on an ironically rare sunny day, my brother, Charlie, and our brother-in-law, Wayne, decided to go for a ride to view the beautiful Wailua Falls.
My brother was in the process of taking several photos when--all of a sudden and much to his amazement--a young Caucasian woman appeared at the top of the falls and began gyrating with her hula hoop.
Quickly, Charlie whipped out his video camera and filmed the young woman (and, eventually, her two male companions) as they moved about the precipice.
In the past, several people have fallen to their deaths from the same spot where the hula hoopster was doing her thing.
Kauai has had its share of flash floods, too. It would not have been a far fetch of the imagination to visualize such an occurrence taking place, especially in light of the recent heavy rainfall.
We're thankful the young woman and her friends did not experience any mishaps.
For Charlie's part, it gave him impetus to post his video on YouTube.
And, thus, I get to share it with you, faithful blog follower.
