Day 20 – Time Out
Sometimes in life your body tells you to take a time out from busy. OK for me, the body tells me on a quarterly schedule. Today was that day. We had plans to return to the church in the morning for the unveiling of the cooked pig, volunteer for a bit, have a friend up with her son and show the around the North Shore, all by noon.
Body said no after watching the unveiling(and it wasn’t because of seeing the piggies). I wasn’t feeling so hot, so we cancelled plans, which I felt horrible about.
We missed the undressing of the imu, arrived in time to see them pulling out the first pig and stayed for a few minutes more.
We retreated home for the rest of the morning. Around noonish, I felt like I could function for a bit and Mike was a bit bored of sitting around. We headed out to Wahiawa Botanical Gardens. It was a quick drive from the North Shore and the walk around the gardens wasn’t time-consuming, mainly because the lower portions were closed.
The garden is beautiful and you wouldn’t realize you are in an urban setting.
After our exploration, I still had a little steam left, so I knew I could do one more short excursion. We drove by a sacred site, The Kukaniloko Birthing Stones and visited the site.
This is located in a sugar cane field with the beautiful mountains as a backdrop.
I was pretty spent after our two hour outing. I rested while, Mike grilled up dinner. After dinner, he went for a sunset swim and while I stood on land to capture the sunset. We were treated to a pre show at our sunset show, a rainbow.
