The First Hawaiian Sunset of 2015

I guess that if you do one thing enough times, it becomes a tradition. It has become a tradition for Exploration: Hawaii to capture the first Hawaiian sunset of every new year. In 2012, we said hello to the new year at Waimea Bay. In 2013, we found ourselves on an empty beach in Maile. In 2014, we caught a beautiful sunset at Ko Olina. And in 2015, we ushered in the new year by driving the farthest west that we could, to Keawaula Beach on the Waianae Coast.

I convinced a couple of my favorite people to come along. Big clouds blocked our view of the sun.

Selfies, smiles, and confusion.

And then some shenanigans. Can you figure out what we were trying to spell?

Eventually, we all just flashed the shaka. Here’s to a happy and prosperous new year to all of you!
