calivintage: waimea

today is my last day in hawaii before i board a big plane and spend five hours flying over the ocean headed back to my little apartment in oakland. i looked up the forecast and should be expecting rain showers and temperatures in the 50s when i return. it’s back to the grind for me, but i’m thankful to have been able to spend a week in paradise before returning to my usual routine.

these photos were snapped at the botanical gardens in waimea after we feasted on kahuku shrimp in the north shore of oahu. the gardens were absolutely stunning and we had fun prancing around and snapping cheezy tourist pictures, which is the thing to do when you’re on vacation! after spending about two hours wandering about in the lush greenery, we headed out for some hawaiian shave ice at matsumotos, and then drove through the country side back to our hotel. it was a beautiful day that i will not soon forget!

    Love it! When I went there the sun was shining and when we got to the waterfall, it started pouring rain with the sun still in full force. Sunny rain. Hawaii is so magical.
