Liddy was kind enough to pose for me in front of Fern Grotto.
Because of damage by several hurricanes, the ferns have been severely damaged. Flooding in 2006 caused parts of the cave ceiling to collapse. This resulted in the closure of the attraction until it was reinforced and new viewing platforms to be built.
Elvis keeps people coming back, but I felt it was a bit… over rated.
Fern Grotto is on the Wailua River. This is the east side of Kauai. Pay your money to the Smiths and enjoy a short cruise up the river.
Not my kind of adventure. I would rather rent a canoe but I was constrained.
Of course the sky opened moments after we arrived encouraging us to head back to the tour boat. That may have been a contributing factor to my dissatisfaction.
