One woman. One horse. 48 states for Domestic Violence Awareness

Check back often for the latest updates and stories from Meredith and Apollo as they journey 10,000 miles on a four year ride around the USA.

Aloha, Hawaii!

48 states may be enough for Apollo, but this week I added the 49th to my four year journey!  While not technically part of my ride, since I travelled there sans horse, I had the good luck to be able to spend a few days in Hawaii soaking up some sun.  Meanwhile, Apollo stayed with an extremely nice horsewoman near Seattle, Martha, who deserves more thanks than I can possibly express.

The reason for my side-trip was because one of my best friends was getting married there.  Since the timing coincided with my Seattle break, where I’ve been waiting for the pass trail to clear over the Cascades, I was able to take the time to attend the wedding. 

This was the first time I’ve been to Hawaii, and I must say it exceeded all my expectations.  It is a beautiful state, the beaches are amazing (and I don’t even normally like going to the beach), and the weather was simply perfect.  Oh yeah, and the wedding was nice too!
Arriving in Hawaii - I never did see a Welcome to Hawaii sign to take a selfie with, but this was close enough!

Naturally I had to try as much island food and drinks and I could squeeze into my tummy and schedule

My view for most of the week
