While was saw very little in the way of rain on Oahu, there was quite a bit of intermittent rain on Hawaii. Never enough to ruin the whole day, but we drove through a couple strong showers as we made our way around the island. The rains engorged the rivers and streams and turned the otherwise gentle and picturesque waterfalls into something else.
This is what Rainbow Falls is supposed to look like:
This is what we saw:
Hard to believe it’s the same waterfall.
This is what Pe’epe’e Falls (pronounced peh-eh peh-eh, just so you know) is supposed to look like:

All total I took around 1,000 photos. You should be glad I stopped when I did. But frankly, I’m ready to move on.
One thing I forgot to tell you was that we ran into our neighbors at Pearl Harbor. They have a daughter, also named Katie, who is a year older than ours. The girls had been texting each other because the other Katie’s family was staying about a mile down Waikiki Beach and they thought to maybe get together. It just wasn’t going to happen. When we went to Pearl Harbor we were in the very first group and who should also be in the group but the other Katie’s family. They were leaving later that afternoon. What are the odds?
Okay. Moving on…
