So I took Domo on a little hike today around the eastern most corner of our island. I consider it to be the most rugged coastline on Oahu and definitely not a hike to go on with out a guide. Luckily for Domo I just happen to be quite familiar with the area as I have been coming here since I was her age. You do the math.
The hike starts at the Makapuu Lighthouse where it veers off the paved path and begins to descend a very steep and very rough trail. Many loose rocks to pay attention to and Domo drew blood almost immediately after a slight misstep. She took a quick dip in the tide pool to sanitize her scratches before we left the tourists behind and began to trek towards my favorite part of the hike which is always without people. Not too many souls willing to risk life and limb to view the unspoiled coastline.
It was about a 3 hour hike and Domo tried her best not to be impressed with what was around each bend but I am certain that on her long flight back to the beast coast she will undoubtedly be reminiscing about the blood, sweat and tears she spent conquering the hike of her life thus far.
