Sailboat on the Pacific Ocean at Twilight

Twilight Sail

Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

Sky Watch Friday

I live on a hill above the ocean, and we often sit outside to watch the sunset.   During the last hour before the sun goes down, we usually see a number of pleasure boats and fishing vessels heading for the port of Kawaihae, which is a few miles down the coast from where we live.  One evening last week, we spotted this particular sailboat heading toward the harbor much later than the others.  It looked a little lonely out on the big ocean all by itself as the sky began to darken.

What a view you have--I am jealous.
Do they still hold the magic with so many you must see?

Scotty Graham said...

nice shot, Bobbie!! Oh,how I miss Hawaii...I lived in Kauai for over 10 years, and moved just after Hurricane Iniki hit in 1992. I have been wanting to move back ever since...but got stuck in Indonesia....some day I will return.

Cheers,

Scotty
