Curiosity: forget “Cherchez la femme” (Look for the woman.) “Cherchez l’histoire.” (Look for the story.)
A few days later we drove to the North Shore and hiked part way up the Kealia Trail. It began as a smooth dirt trail, but transitioned to increasingly larger, uneven rocks it got higher and steeper. I always like to finish what we start; this time I was glad Gary said we should turn back when we did. It was much more difficult going down than coming up. As an extra bonus, he spotted a bright turquoise flash among the trees below the trail. It turned out to be a wild peacock.
For not quite two—and twins at that—Myles and Julian are very sociable. They have fun at the Outrigger Club without getting wet. And their parents enjoy being able to watch without having to hover too close.
Of course we spent our last evening at home with Myles and Julian. They’re coming here in late July—when they should be just about old enough to remember us.
