During my 'blogging hiatus' we took the most fantastic trip to Hawaii. We were able to meet friends who live in Australia for 2 weeks on the Island of Hawaii and it was amazing.
One thing that struck me when we were there was how early the sun set. Here in Canada the sun was setting around 9:30pm but in Hawaii, it was setting around 7pm. I actually quite liked it. First because it was very easy to be out and about while the sun was setting and enjoy the beautiful light that comes at sunset but it also provided a nice break from the heat. The nights were not hot at all and I'm sure it was partly because of how early dark arrived.
