Hanging Out at Golden Hour: Ofu Photo Journal

Jan 14, 2019Lifestyle, Travel

January 2nd was a spectacular day.

We hiked Mt. Tumu, jumped in the ocean to cool down, and then two words: golden hour.

It was Taylor’s last night so Ben and Deb set up a sweet bonfire on the beach with bevvies all around.

And later, the clouds cleared and I finally got the stars I was wishing for.

Ofu, Olosega, and Ta,’ū islands make up the Manu’a islands of American Samoa

My golden boy

Sweet sunsets

Hanging out on the Ofu airstrip

I love how the sun reflects on the Ofu Fire Station (orange building)

Always gushing over my guy

Ofu, ooh-la-la

A lovely bunch of individuals – the Vaoto crew

Ian took these two pics (above and below) and I love the mood

    I love your filters and depiction of Ofu, Nerelle! It really puts a whole new spin on ways of looking at the island!
