The First Hawaiian Sunset of 2014

Shooting the sunset on the first day of the new year has become somewhat of a tradition. The tradition has been around for almost as long as Exploration: Hawaii has been online. In 2012, Joel, Ryan, and I went to world famous Waimea Bay to watch the waves and the surfers riding them. In 2013, we drove out to Waianae. Heavy rains kept us away from Kaena Point, but, we did find an empty beach just on the side of Farrington Highway. This year, we decided to end the first day of the new year at Ko Olina’s Lagoon 1, located just next to the JW Marriot Ihilani Resort and Spa.┬áThe first sunset of 2014 was a wonderful sight. Here’s to hoping that everyone has a prosperous year filled with adventure and exploration.
