Yesterday for K’s birthday we did the Hau’ula Loop Trail. It was a great hike. It ranks first on my list so far. The second being Maunawili Falls. It took us about 2 hours and the great thing about it was the diversity of vegetation, the level of difficulty (just right), and the beautiful views at the top.
In parts the trees had soft light green pine needles, the ground covered with them so it looked like sand…like we were walking on the beach. And other times it felt like we were in the Rocky Mountains the trees straight as a pin and all the way up into the clouds. There was also trees that had long wide pine branches that dipped down like a tutu. I said they were ballerina trees. It was a beautiful hike.
Afterward we drove along the very picturesque coast and stopped at the Shrimp Shack not far from the trailhead and discovered something unbelievable delicious (I mean other than the shrimp)
I made a big surf and turf dinner for the birthday meal and made K go on a hunt for his final present which was custom-made by larryO at Entermodal. He was so great to work with. And the final product felt like a lot of love had gone into it.
Happy Birthday and I love you K. Here’s a little more WCW for you:
