Rainy Day Waterfalls

It’s rainy season in Hawaii.  The past few weeks have been rainy, rainy, rainy.  One of my favorite quotes to tell students, especially when I was substitute teaching, is “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”  It’s a metaphor, of course, but can be taken literally!  I better practice what I preach!  Last weekend Dan and I had a rainy day beach day, taking a long walk with our umbrellas.  Yesterday we were trying to decide what to do.  Bowling?  Movie?  Nah.  We decided to go on a hike.  I remember seeing this small canyon off to the side of the Old Pali Highway, and thought it would possibly be a place for waterfalls on a rainy day.  We decided to see if this theory were true, and turns out it was.  Yesterday I realized how nice it was to hike in the rain, because everything green was so much more GREEN.  We took our GoPro and Dan had fun filming some creative shots.
