Soaking wet in Hawaii

Soaking wet in Hawaii

February 2011 we boarded the plane for Oahu, Hawaii. We were excited to leave the cold Calgary winter behind for a week of sunshine! We arrived in Oahu and were told that it was raining and had been for days. We knew that before we left Calgary, but forecasts change, right? Usually…yes, for this trip…no. Apparently it was the most rain they’ve seen in many years. We were looking forward to doing some hiking while we were there, but with everything being so wet and slippery, any serious hiking was out of the question. So, we made the best of it and did some smaller hikes, a road trip around the island and went for a submarine ride.

Even with the rain we had a great trip, but I look forward to visiting the islands of Hawaii again when there’s less rain.

Did I mention that I love the Honolulu Cookie company? They have free samples! I was so busy sampling that I failed at getting a good picture 😛
