One of our family’s new year’s resolutions is to get outdoors more. After all, we live in Hawaii. People spend thousands of dollars to visit our beautiful islands and we have the luxury of living right here in what many people consider “paradise.” What a shame to spend so much time indoors, staring at the same 4 walls when there is so much beauty in nature to enjoy.
Today, we visited one of our favorite places on the island, Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden in Kailua.
We had lunch with a dear friend, then drove on the H3 through the magnificent Ko’olau Mountains to the lush windward side of Oahu. We arrived after 2 pm to find that the garden closes at 4 pm, so we had only 2 hours to enjoy the park this time around. We fed the ducks and embarked on a short hike. The fresh air and wondrous scenery was refreshing after a hectic holiday season.
Excited for the the adventures ahead of us as we discover and experience the outdoors of our island home.
