Somewhere over the …

But instead of Judy Garland, think Iz Kamakawiwo’ole.

This is another shot taken on our last day on Kauai, the last day of 2009. The day started out sunny and warm: at lunchtime, it was 86 degrees at Hanalei Bay. (oh, yeah.) The waves were big (12-18 ft.) and the surfers were out in force.

Two hours later, at Ke’e Beach in Ha’ena, a storm blew in from the west and we were drenched and cold. (OK, so it was 70 degrees, but there was a serious wind chill…) Back to Anini Beach in Princeville, where the weather lifted a little bit and we could dry out and warm up.

The surfers were gone so it’s hard to tell the scale of the waves here. Trust me, they’re still big.

    What a stunning photo! I love the mood of the clouds and the crisp white line of waves. Turns out we overlapped on Kauai, but we were down at Poipu and didn’t venture out at all.

    Actually, we were staying at Poipu, too — we’ll have to compare notes!

What'cha think?
