Rainy Honolua

It's been cold, rainy, and windy this week on Maui. Tourists are not happy but I'm sort of loving it....
Weather like this is rare in the tropical Pacific and when it comes locals celebrate by turning off the ceiling fans, closing the bedroom windows at night, and digging out our neoprene rash guards from storage.
Welcome to December in Hawaii. One of most favorite months of the year....
I've been working overtime all week and suffering from a some sort of flu/cold bug that just won't die. However, instead of flopping back on the couch after a long day shift, Carlos and I decided to bundle up and get out of the house for a mini hike around Honolua Bay.
Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans for us and the rain swooped in within minutes of arriving. Luckily, I was able to capture a few shots before dashing back to our muddy car.
Enjoy.
