The Tradewinds are back with a vengence. The north shore was a little rough so I decided to go to what my dad called, the windest place on earth..lol.. I don't know if it is the windest place on earth but the guy in the video almost lost his wifes purse and I almost lost my camera !! The sound you hear on the video is the wind !
The Hawaiians used the Pali as a means to get from one side of the island to the other, my mom and i traveled it when i was very young. I saw MANY overturned cars back then so it was with great relief that a tunnel was built thru the mountain so cars are safe from the wind. Like most places important to the ancient Hawaiians the view is amazing.
The road to and from the windy lookout is like a mini jungle ride. So different from the ocean shore im used to but equally as beautiful. We have no snakes here in Hawaii so being in this lush green world is truly wonderful . I am an island gal....
