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?

      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 :)

      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!
