A Scenic Sunday in Along the Coast in East Hawaii

A person should go out on the water on a fine day to a small distance from a beautiful coast, if he would see Nature really smile. Never does she look so delightful, as when the sun is brightly reflected by the water, while the waves are gently rippling, and the prospect receives life and animation from the glancing transit of an occasional row-boat, and the quieter motion of a few small vessels. But the land must be well in sight; not only for its own sake, but because the immensity and awfulness of a mere sea-view would ill accord with the other parts of the glittering and joyous scene. ~Augustus William Hare and Julius Charles Hare, Guesses at Truth, by Two Brothers, 1827

    By the way, do you have relatives in Cebu particularly in Camotes Is? I know some Morata there.

  7. Beautiful sea cost looks like a place in the Philippines too. This is what I am always thinking for now, because for months we are covered with snow and naked brown trees all around. ^_^ Happy Sunday!
