Two weeks ago I talked about being directionally challenged. Here's some more interesting "directional information" about the Hawaiian Islands.
Are you living in an area of the country where it's cold and wet right now? We are very wet in the Pacific NW, so I often think of the islands and how nice it would be to be warm and dry!
But even in Hawaii there are two sides of every island with some distinction in climate. Yes, it’s mild and gorgeous every day all year long with a splash of rain everyday. And although one island is generally wetter (Kauai) than another, every island has variety.
Windward is the wet side of the island (the east)
Leeward is the dry side of the island (the west)
I hope you’re learning lots about Hawaii. With my post two Thursdays ago I spoke about Mauka and Makai, so with today’s post, you should never get lost, and always know what side of the island you’re on, right??
And, check out another one of my stuffed doggies! Looks to me like he’s prepared with a hooded sweatshirt and heading to the windward side of the island.
Aloha, and Mahalo for visiting!
