We have a sweet friend visiting from the mainland, so my family and my brother-in-law, sister-in-law, and their little ones decided to show our guest some of the island sites. Unfortunately, Oahu has been getting dumped on for weeks. We apprehensively checked the forecast this morning and were thrilled to see the possibility of rain drop to 10%, so off we headed to Kailua!
I intentionally chose an easy hike for us, that I thought would be relatively dry. Boy, was I wrong! The normally quick, easy, shaded section of the hike was a slippery, muddy mess that we struggled to climb. But going up was the easy part. Going down led to lots of laughs and bruises and mud-covered clothes.
In spite of the mud, I still had a great time and look forward to my next hiking adventure.
