One of my favorite things about Hawaii is its vibrant skies. Sunrises and sunsets always seem to be extremely colorful and enjoyable. Since we had some rainy weather, the clouds also tended to light up as the day was beginning or ending.
Love the clouds from this day.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
If you frequent our site, you know how much we love the ocean and beautiful colors. While on the island of Oahu over Thanksgiving, my friend Amanda took my parents and I on one of the most scenic and beautiful hikes I’ve ever been on. It overlooked the most perfect beach, Lanikai.
We sat on top of these old military “pill boxes” and just soaked it all in.

A challenging and rewarding climb on Oahu is the Koko Head stairs. I’m so thankful to be healthy and able but this hike is a butt kicker. On Thanksgiving morning, my dear friend Amanda and I (along with one of her friends) headed up in the dark to the top of Koko Head to see the sunrise from a birds eye view. It was breathtaking and a great way to give thanks to this gorgeous world we live in. Then of course hang with family and eat lots 🙂

This hike is a challenge but short. You could be up and down in an hour if you were doing it just for the work out. I love beautiful scenery though and was so happy to enjoy the views and breeze from the top with one of my closest friends.

I can’t explain why I feel the way I do about the ocean but I just love it. There’s something so calming and beautiful about the motion filled currents. It’s such a powerful body of water that changes like the wind.
What’s not to love?

Last week I got to spend time in Hawaii with family just soaking in the good weather and relaxing. I love nothing more than a good sunset or sunrise and I made sure to park it right near the beach whenever the sun was on the horizon.

Each day brought unique skies and tranquil days. I can’t wait to share the rest of the photos this week!
