I love venturing out to the North Shore. Today, I met with a farmer and he graciously showed me around the farm and spoke with me about permaculture and the different variety of crops he grew. The farm had a spectacular view of Waimea Bay.
I felt right at home being up there. I even saw “dormilonas” on the ground. It reminded me of my grandparents’s place as they had these along the path leading up to their farm.
They say working the land can be very therapeutic. I think so. Although there was no space for another WWOOFer, he said he’d be happy to teach me about permaculture techniques and growing agricultural crops. Hands-on learning to compliment the Master Gardener course I’m enrolled in. Woo-hoo!
After visiting with the farmer, I decided to take a dip in Waimea Bay hoping it would alleviate my neck pain. The ocean is known for curing all types of ailments. The waves were impressive. The relief I experienced from being buoyant in the water was short-lived, but I delighted in it nonetheless.
After swimming in Waimea Bay, I worked up an appetite and headed to Hale’iwa for some eats. I was in the mood for something fresh and tasty and found the right spot: Waialua Bakery. Everything was homemade. Not only did I savor a delicious turkey sandwich and an ice cream cookie sandwich, I also enjoyed reading the positive quotes on the wall.
I shared with someone on the bus today that I have seen at least three rainbows during my time here in Hawaii, including today’s beautiful arc over Shark’s Cove. He said that means that my luck is changing and good things are coming my way. I sure hope so, though I must say if we look for it, we can always find something good happening in our lives.
