Abort the Hike, On to Plan B
We were going to go for a hike today, but decided against it since it has been raining for the past two days and we were sure the trail would be wet, mushy, and slimy. Moving on to plan B we headed out to the windward side of the island, to a town called Laie (don't even try to pronounce it, I stumble over it ever time I try to say it). Anyway, at this one spot, there's an outcropping of a lava formation in the water with a small bridge structure. All-in-all, it's a beautiful place, although if you're not fishing, there isn't much to keep you there longer than a half hour or so. Still....who could resist?
Just up the road is Hukilau Beach--probably named in conjunction with the Hukilau Cafe. If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you'll remember I mentioned this place before. It's a cute little local breakfast place--7 tables little. The name was used for the cafe in "50 First Dates". An entirely new structure was built at the edge of the water for the movie, and when the movie was finished, the cafe was torn down--yikes.
After spending a little while at the beach we headed over to the Hukilau Cafe, but alas, it closed just as we arrived. So....moving on to plan B for the second time, we headed back to Haleiwa to have burgers at Kua Aina Burgers--one of our favorite places anyway.
Hooray for Plan B.
