Waimanu – Flow of goodness

Oct. 7th through Oct. 14th, 2016

Gearing up for a magical trip! to the valley of Waimanu. Our second trip together into this valley. So exciting to be out in nature for at least 6 entire days and nights. No cell phones, no computers, out of our routine and tuned in.

My intention for this trip is to re-connect with self, with nature but specially with the waters of this planet. In deep prayer we’ll walk and play.

We prepared for this trip for a month. Order the lightest gear, the lightest this and that, dehydrated food and lots of details. We are ready now and our friends from TrustedHousesitters are here to care for our kitties! Yay!  We can go with ease of mind and trust they’ll be loved and taken care of.

Shelley and Dan ( the housesitters)  gave us a ride to the entrance of Waipio and hitchhiked and adventured all the way down to the first valley with us! img_2256
About to start the “Z trial” all the way up, in and out, and down to the next Valley:

It rained for a couple of days and the river has grown. We would need to cross it tomorrow to get out of the valley. We observed a couple of people crossing it today, no problem… Phew! Ok, All is well.

We met a really nice couple that arrived a couple of days after us. Sabrina and Eagle. They had a dog that came with them in the kayak. The ocean was too rough for the dog to go back with them so they asked us to walk him out with us and so we did.

It was a lot of fun! and challenging as well. Probably the longest hike that he’s ever done. Every time we took a little break, he would coil and try to sleep only to be gently and lovingly pushed back again in the trail.

When we finally arrived, Sabrina and Eagle were waiting in Waipio… super stoked to see their dog “Lehua” and their dog SUPER stoked to see them. They took our stuff in the kayak across the river so it was easier for us to cross the river back again… and gave us a ride on their truck all the way up to our ride.

Stinky, stoked, reset, tired, FULL of goodness and love, we came back home to happy cats and a well cared home.

LIFE IS SIMPLY AMAZING!
