|Carol, Me, Karan and Billy|
|After the storm.|
The most historic event of our trip was the huge storm that hit Kailua on Oahu the hardest. This is the town where our Bed & Breakfast was located: Manu Mele, owned and operated by Carol. The island of Kauai had been inundated with rain for weeks and was mostly flooded out. The storm we experienced that produced half-dollar-sized hail, had not been experienced for at least fifty years! The airport shuttle driver that took us back to Honolulu on our way to The Big Island had never seen hail, so I showed him pictures. He was awe-struck and reported the pictures to his dispatcher while we sat there listening to him and laughing. The hail shredded Carol's plants, and she was very upset. She has a lovely garden. It also flooded the streets at our crossroads so much so that the fire department sent a truck to pump us out.
Stay tuned for more on our amazing vacation. Mahalo.
