Wanna know a few secrets about my Momma?
- She’s always sworn she doesn’t know how to swim, but I know for a fact that she paddled canoe all through high school [yes, paddling entails swimming].
- She’s a fearless leader and activist in both our community and the world, yet she’s cripplingly afraid of cockroaches.
- I can’t remember doing a single hike with her while growing up, but she’s gone every single weekend for the past month.
Yesterday, Zak, Ben, Mom and I got a late start and headed into Makamaka`ole around 3pm.
We made our way through an abundance of ginger [both ornamental + shampoo/awapuhi],
enjoyed all kinds of natural beauty,
[lilikoi/passion fruit flower + fruit]
and crossed this river thirteen times
before coming to a small pond with a sweet waterfall.
Apparently you’re supposed to climb a rope over this fall and up another 30 feet or so. But we decided to save that adventure for another day.
Yesterday we were just happy to be enjoying yet another gorgeous adventure together in nature.
Happy Monday, friends! Let’s make this week rock!
What’d you get up to this weekend?
What is your favorite thing to do with family? Although my family is always a lot of fun, I’d definitely have to say mine is being out in nature, where there’s enough room for all of our personalities to shine!
