Last week we went to The Grand Hyatt, Poipu Beach, Kauai, Hawaii. It was for business and pleasure. We landed on a clear and beautiful day. We discovered that rain had been falling for the last two months and we were fortunate to be there on a day that was sunny.
We saw a few reasonable sunrises and I saw my very first “green flash” during the first sunrise. I thought I was going to have to go to Maine to see that. Such a nice surprise. We traveled a little ways to sightsee and then the rains picked back up. It was very soggy there. It didn’t dampen our spirits though. Hawaii is a lovely place and I like being there, come rain or shine or frizzy hair. So I leave you with, “Aloha” and a few photos that capture my memories of Kauai.
It occured to me, while writing last weeks post, that I don’t see the sunrise all that often. I’ve a hill that sits to the east between myself and the sun. I do watch the sunrise, almost everyday, when we go to the Hawaiian Islands by just not altering from California time. Yesterday, I went to the writing group and one of the regulars wanted help with her haiku. It made me think about the fact that I had not written a haiku in a very long time. Here is one for each of these sunrise photos. I hope you like them.
