Good morning, Hawaii
25-Aug-05. The lanai of our rental house in Poipu was a prime spot for watching the sunrise. First light would silhouette the mountains slightly to the northeast, and then as dawn got closer and closer, the clouds in the eastern sky would brighten, followed by sun itself. The ubiquitous chickens heralded each new day with a cacophany of cock-a-doodle-doo-ing. I'm glad they're so happy to see each new day, but there's a lot to be said for silent appreciation.
The slideshow (see sidebar) will give you an idea of how glorious the sunrises were.
