Pule at Sunset,
“A Hanalei Sunset would awaken the sole of a Mummy” Dan Jakins famously once wrote. The powerful Pacific Ocean rumbles below our feet and its waves crash 350 feet below into Queens bath. Times slows as the last rays of sun glow through the clouds and backlight the mountains of the north shore. Thoughts of gratitude peace and serenity are illuminated by majestic views of the north shore in the mango light.
