My plan was to post a beautiful sunrise photo from the top of Haleakala this morning. Well, we got up at 4:00 a.m. and drove to the top only to see thick clouds, heavy rain and wind. O well. At least I wasn’t one of those people who got up just as early and paid big bucks, to coast a bike down the mountain in the blowing rain. They didn’t look happy. Too make it worse – off to the West, you could tell the beaches were in nice sun. I wonder how many of them uttered the words “we could be laying on the beach right now!”
So, I decided to post this photo from yesterday afternoon. The waves were pretty good – lots of surfers and windsurfers – fun to photograph!
This weekend we head to Hana before flying home on Monday. Might make one more try for sunrise on the mountain before we fly Monday morning.
