Sunrise Waikiki

A  L  O  H  A !
Waikiki By Night Looking Towards Diamond Head.

“There’s always people 
looking the other way when 
the miracles take place -

Dawn Reddens The Alenuihaha Channel;
Molokai 41 Miles Away. Link

- people who want only 
a good night’s sleep when 
the stars are dancing, 
comets falling, the angels 
leaning low out of midnight 
with their trumpets, 
their cantatas of longing.” 
                       Paul Russell       

No Morning Like Oahu Morning

"Each morning we are 
born again. What we do 
today is what matters most." 

View From The 38th Floor

Waikiki was a sandy area where 
fresh water 
from the mountains mingled 
with the salt surf creating a place 
famous for healing from ancient times.
Hawaiian Royals kept gracious beach
homes here, while Hawaiians grew taro 
and Asian subjects raised ducks and rice.

Though an urban resort today, 
I heard roosters crowing while 
taking the pre-dawn pics above. 

Hawaiian spirits live again.

Grand views! That first shot is my favourite.

Love those high-rise views. Does Hawaii have earthquakes or just volcanoes?

It's been a long while since I've been to Waikiki. What I remember is that all the people, traffic, and shops didn't ruin the ocean, the breeze, the sun, the nature for me. I loved swimming in the ocean as the sun rose. That is heaven.
