Whilst I am nowhere near a morning person, I’ve been itching to watch the sunrise every morning. My best friend Kaiʻolu and I drove to Sandy’s at 5 am as the sun peaked over the ocean. We stepped over the lava rocks in complete darkness and waited for the light. As my departure date has quickly appeared, I’ve appreciated home even more. There’s nowhere else in the world as beautiful at Hawaiʻi, especially during a sunrise on the beach. I’ll truly miss days like these.
