Sunrise from Diamond Head

For our last day in Hawaii, Mel and I decided to hire a car and drive around the island to have a look and sample some of the quieter beaches Oahu has to offer. Note to self: Check dates for public holidays before making plans for a quiet day on the beach. Today just happened to be Memorial Day in the States, and every man and his beach towel was out and about.

We still had a wonderful day. We headed out early and towards the east to see if we could catch the sunrise from Diamond Head. Mel was not in the mood for a hike so I found a spot to park the car on the side of the volcano, where we had a great view over the houses of Diamond Head, east to where the sun rose from behind the land and the ocean. I stood and watched the sunrise for ages, not able to get enough of the glorious view that was before me. I love a good sunrise. I prefer not to be out of bed at that time of the day, but when I am, I love the freshness of the air and the crispness of dawning day....

Oh Elke, I couldn't agree more. Morning isn't my favourite time of day either, but every once in a while I fall out of bed early in the morning. The light is can be quite stunning and much brighter. And (as you say) the air is fresh and crispy. It didn't happen much, but seeing a city wake up always gave me a special feeling.
