The hike was beautiful, in fact, I wished I had my Canon the whole time we were hiking. This trail is very close to our house, so we plan to head back out again soon. I will probably make the husband take the leash so that I can snap away with the ol' camera. It was a really green hike with lots of open areas to look around and explore. It was our first real hike since we moved here, and it revved up my need to go on more hikes. When I lived in Alabama, I used to go for hikes ALL the time with my friends. It is so nice to live somewhere that has an unlimited supply of hiking trails and other fun adventures.
Hawaii is definitely a constant source of inspiration for me, because it really connects me back to the Earth and mother nature. During the hustle and bustle of everyday chores, duties, errands, and work schedules, it's so refreshing to escape the chaos and connect with a more serene environment. I am feeling so blessed right now to be surrounded with such beauty. Please take time for yourself this week to explore some place new and leave your cell phone at home so you can really be present in that moment. Embrace the beauty. -Lorel
