Akaka Falls

We took a quick trip out to Akaka Falls on Wednesday; I haven't been since I was a child.  It was almost like remembering a dream: a familiar pathway, the same soft mist of rain on my face.   I love sharing these places with my daughters.

Heading out on the circle. 
Still takes my breath away.

My sister and I.  Quite unfair, really. :-9

Heading back up the trail.

Wiped out. :D
Only 5 more days here--time has flown.  A hui hou!

 Not too much to say; I always have been the quiet sort.  :)  Tonight, I am also the exhausted sort, so I'll just share a few, very random, rather unspectacular pictures:

One of many Madagascars hanging around Granny and Papa's house. 
Bold little things; we found another one helping itself to a rice cake that had been left on the table.

Standing in front of  'Iolani Palace, the official residence of King Kalakaua and family. 

Breakfast on the lanai.

Shave Ice. 'Nuff said.
Uh-oh--I've been remiss.  Little Miss Thing (one guess as to which daughter I am referring) has been reminding us all day that it is Uncle Andy's birthday.  So, Happy Birthday, Uncle Andy.  If you see him, please tell him we had mochi ice cream in honor of his birthday--we were out of Rocky Road and chocolate-covered marshmallows. :)  All for now. :)
