Mermaids in the Rain by Wyatt Shaw in Heana Beach, Kauai, USA

The weather here is so unpredictable, when we swam out it was beautiful with no clouds. Thirty minutes into the photo session the clouds covered the sky and it started to rain. The rain however made for an interesting photo with the clouds on the mountain.

Can you sum up Kauai? Kauai is a small island with a ton of beach bums, haha. What I mean is that everyone here does their job then gets a nice cold beer. What we call a “Pau hana,” an after work treat. Go to the beach catch some waves watch the sunset and call it a day.

What is your perfect day in Kauai? A perfect day on Kauai is when the sun is out and its summer but we have the waves rollling in still. Everyone is out and about, girls in their little bikinis tanning and guys out surfing and magically the tourist have all decided to go to Honolulu instead. haha just kidding

What is the best thing about your spot? How clean the water is

What is the worst? When the beach is crowded with tourists

What would be surprising about this place to an outsider? Swimmimg with the marine life

Before I die I want to visit: Everywhere: Indo, Bali, Australia, Thailand and Tahiti are big on my list.
