Adrift in a Ditch

This is our entry in The Daily Post Daily Prompt: Adrift.

In January 2014, we took a Carnival Cruise from Long Beach, CA, to Hawaii and back. One of our stops was the Island of Kauai. Here we visited the site of what was once the Lihue Sugar Plantation.  The sugar cane fields of this plantation were irrigated by water from Mt. Waialeale, transported by the circa 1870 hand-dug Hanamaulu ditch system of canals and tunnels. While the sugar plantation has closed, the waterways are still there.  The enterprising Kaua`i Backcountry Adventures company offers their  Mountain Tubing Adventure to “float down the plantation irrigation system on gently flowing water, through canals, flumes and five tunnels.”  Here are four other people adrift in the canals. This was a very enjoyable experience.
