Lanikai Sunrise and Hoomaluhia, 7/9/17

Here we (Derek, Milton S., Bob, Walter, Dewey and me) are - yes 5:43 a.m. We knew the sun was going to rise from the left of the islands. Yikes, low clouds near the horizon. 

I definitely have to learn how to make photos of the sun without it being blown out.

By 6:45, we were ready for breakfast. Off to Big City Diner at Windward Mall, then to Derek's.

Bob and Walter called it a day.
The rest of us went to Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden.

Highlight: Derek and I were chatting when I saw two young boars zipping by.  I managed to get the smaller one.

After spending 2 hours, we were ready to leave. Luckily although it was very hot it was not humid.
Later it is fun to see each other's photos and to see that we were scattered at Lanikai Beach.

Thanks Jalna. Thank goodness I was panning as I saw them - must say it was surreal, like we were in their playground.

Thanks Shun Wah. They were quick - just got the slower one. Lol!

Morning photos are such a challenge for me- especially the sun. Note to self- practice!!!
