Waimea Valley and Falls is a lovely place to visit. It can be quite crazy on a weekend. We got there early in the morning on a weekday and it was quiet and peaceful. Lots of botanical areas and paths, a lovely natural creek and waterfall, meadows and benches to sit, birds to listen to and watch on the grass.

After walking all around, we had a quiet time at a grassy picnic area and I did a one-hour painting of red ginger hanging over the grass while my husband read a book.
