this past weekend, we headed north to waimea valley.
it's been years since my last visit to waimea valley, so this was all new to me. upon entering the grounds, you experience a lush botanical garden with a pathway that leads to the waterfall. i wanted to introduce mini-he to hiking, and this short (3/4 mile each way), paved, and relatively level hike was a nice start. they do offer cart rides, which was my backup plan in case he got tired and fussy, but we didn't need it. there was so much to see while enjoying the company of our friends.
come on, i'll show you what we saw and heard!
see the waterfall.
hear the waterfall.
stopped for ono pops, shave ice, and fresh coconut water on the way down. this kula strawberry and maui goat cheese ono pop was so. good.
later, when i got home, i cracked open the coconut and
scooped out the meat!
ended the day with a late lunch...
li hing mui margaritas + enchiladas.

have a great weekend!
