Hanalei Pier Sunset
While not as dramatic as watching the sunset from the St. Regis in Princeville, a sunset over Hanalei Bay from the pier is pretty extaordinary. We enjoyed this view, on a Thursday ironically, 2 weeks ago just before heading to dinner at a favorite restaurant Bar Acuda in Hanalei, sitting at the Chef's Table by the kitchen.
Obviously lots of others had the same idea - the sunset, that is - and the beach was lined with people, cameras in hand to enjoy the last few minutes of sun and the changing sky over the water and the famous mountain, Bali Hai (also known as Makana Mountain), from the popular movie South Pacific. Still trying to keep a little of that Aloha Spirit but it's fading fast just barely a week after getting home!
