A month ago we took a trip to Kauai.  Some of the first stops on the island was the Kauai Coffee company to check out their Fall blends of coffee. And go check out Glass Beach were the Sand is made out of pieces of glass that have been polished by the salt water.

Our first day there on Kauai, we wanted to visit McBryde Gardens. Originally, part of the Sugar Plantation that my great grandfather worked on when he first arrived to the islands, McBryde today is a research institute for the study of endangered plants from all over  the world. It is home to the Breadfruit Institute and other plants that are being researched and cultivated to help with world hunger and to find cures for various diseases. Also, it is home to endangered plants that are being studied to save them from extinction.

We had the opportunity to check out beautiful plants and explore the gardens.
