Some sunsets come and go with brilliant flair and flamboyance. Bold. Flashy. Instant attention-grabbing.
Other sunsets slide quietly over the edge, soft and serene, gentle in their stunning.
I’m so glad that the only guaranteed about the Rising and Setting of the sun is that it happens, always, and that it is different, always.
I’m also glad that I live two blocks from the beach so that I can have a front-row seat each evening to watch the show, be it quiet and serene, like tonight’s, or brilliantly flamboyant as it pulls shut the curtain on the day.
This stunning beach is the Kamaole Beach Park III (or Kam 3 in local speak) in sunny South Kihei. Kihei’s six-mile stretch of beaches can never get old because there is so much variety ~ powder-fine white sand, salt & pepper sand, rolling dunes, rugged lava, heavily wooded areas next to wide-open spaces… you get the idea.
And I get to call this place home.
Mahalo always, Maui.
