From Sun to Rain

From Sun to Rain!

I grew up on the Island of Oahu. My whole life it was nothing but Beach, BBQ, Family and Friends. Though I must admit I did a lot of complaining of how hot it was and that I didn't want to do anything but sit in a room with the A/C on full blast. After moving to the rainy state of Washington I now wish that I had spent more time having fun in the sun.

I have been in the state of Washington for almost 5 years now and have not really experienced what the Pacific Northwest has to offer me, because it is really hard to do things in the Rain. Especially hiking, I definitely do not want to get stuck in a mud slide or taken down stream because a river was overflowing. The summers here are too short and not enough time to get my Vitamin D back into my system. Don't get me wrong I love this place and all the wild life it has to offer. I just don't know how much of this rain I can take.

Does anyone from Washington State recommend places to go and see without having to deal with the outside weather?

      Sometimes we take for granted what we have thinking that "something else" will be better only to find out that what we had was pretty good. I can sympathize with you. The rain can get overwhelming sometimes especially if you were not born in such a climate. I hope you find ways to enjoy the northwest....it is a beautiful part of the country even with all the rain. It's not Oahu, mind you, but it does have it's charm. Good luck!

      point2make: Thanks, everytime I go home on vacation I take advantage of ever single day that I am home. I am trying my best to take advantage of what the northwest has to offer. Sometimes its just to far to drive, unlike an island everything is so close :)
