When N's mom was here a week or so ago, we all got up at 5:00 AM and drove to the eastern shore of Oahu for the Sunrise. For people who might visit, this is around the other side of Koko Head at the overlook before the blowhole.

It was faint dawn when we arrived; also cold for Hawaii and a bit drizzling.

We don't know these people, but I like the picture of our fellow people awaiting.

Here comes the Chariot Forthwith

Rise, Apollo

The God has Arisen. All hail!

The sunrise itself was not a tremendous display, but it cast some beautiful images behind us. Koko Crater aglow.

I think you can find every color in the rainbow in the picture above. But if you cannot, here's a tiny rainbow in the cloud (you may have to enlarge to see). The University teams aren't the Rainbow Warriors and Rainbow Wahine for nothing.

Another day has arrived.

Happy New Year!
