National Tropical Botanical Gardens, Kaua'i
There are 5 locations of the National Tropical Botanical Gardens (NTBG) - 4 on Kaua'i and one in Florida. These photos are from the Allerton/McBride Gardens on the South Shore of Kaua'i. It is a beautiful location and a target-rich environment for photographers. The original Jurassic Park movie and one of the Indiana Jones movies were both filmed here (in part). Beware - lots of artistic shots ahead...

Thanks to the efforts of the Allerton family, the gardens are ripe with fountains, statues, and gazebos.

This little fruit contains more than a full day's worth of vitamin C. Not too bad once you get past the initial, prolonged pucker - it is tart!
