rain rain go away

So all of you Hawaii people know that we have been suffering through winter rain for quite a while now, and of course, Hilo is famous for its' rain. Sure it can look like this:

(luckily it's not THIS bad right now)

but sometimes we forget that Hilo can be GORGEOUS. Check out these pics from last summers' fun at 4miles:

~ turtle catching some rays~

~a picture of me taking a picture~

~sky so blue it's purple~

I guess without the rain we wouldn't appreciate the sun
