Day Ten: O'ahu Island

Over the summer I created over 35 achievement badges for the Withings Health Mate fitness app.

Day ten is the O'ahu Island of Hawai'i.


“Oʻahu, known as "The Gathering Place", is the third largest of the Hawaiian Islands.

Being roughly diamond-shaped, surrounded by ocean and divided by mountain ranges, directions on Oʻahu are not generally described with the compass directions found throughout the world. Locals instead use "ewa" to mean toward the western tip of the island, "Diamond Head" to be toward the eastern tip, "mauka" is toward the mountains, and "makai" toward the sea.

O'ahu is also known for having the longest rain shower in history with over 200 days spent with continuous rain. Kaneohe Ranch, O'ahu, Hawaii reported 247 straight days with rain from August 27, 1993 to April 30, 1994.”
