Sunset SUP and a Cruise Ship

Sunset SUP and a Cruise Ship

Photos from earlier this month. The MSC Magnifica had just made its maiden voyage to American Samoa in the morning, and after a short 12-hour visit, left the Pago Harbor that evening. We just got off work, and the water looked too good not to get in. Ian and Paolo paddled out to SUP surf while I tied up to the buoy, and watched this glorious golden hour scene.

Hanging Out at Golden Hour: Ofu Photo Journal

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)

A hunk at dusk

Always gushing over my guy

Ofu, ooh-la-la
