September Sunsets on the North Shore

It's almost time for our trip & I'm getting excited! We're staying at Hanalei Bay Resort in mid- Sept. Wondering from those 'in the know' if they can tell me if we will have beautiful sunsets? Or has the sun moved further and while the sunsets will be pretty, they won't be spectacular? Either way, I'm anticipating sitting on the lanai with a glass of wine and enjoying them. ;-)

The sunset is starting to swing south and will be due west on the 21st. The sunsets will still be very nice but you may not see it over the water from HBR.

I just changed my avatar to last September's sunset from HBR. It was one of the most beautiful ones I had ever experienced and it will certainly still be over the water.

Jebett, I knew you would have the right answer..... Sorry, I was too lazy to look it up since I have not been on the island in September in a long time.

Some of the most spectacular sunsets have been from the North Shore in Aug-Sept....sitting by the pier at Hanalei. The sun does not sink into the ocean, but just clips Bali Hai....the play of light and colors of the clouds are beautiful. Wait until it is dark to leave. Once we left too soon and the colors went wild...and I only glimpsed it.....this is from Aug 29, 2013.

I found this great website that will show you the direction of the sunset. So if you are staying at HBR, you can still see the sunset over the water until about September 7th. It starts to swings south and will be behind the point after that (which is what is pictured in jebett's avatar).

Depending on where you sit to watch the sunset at HBR, it will have a beautiful glow over the water. The most popular spot is now the firepit area next to the tennis courts. Honestly Sept sunsets just take my breathe away.

My avatar is now set for Sept 2012. Makes me want to go back in Sept!!!!!

Thanks to all! I really can't wait now. Jebett - the new avatar is gorgeous! What colors. For the most part, we'll be watching from our lanai (we'll have an unobstructed view), although we will join those at the firepit area too some o the time.

The firepit area will give you a different take. Do enjoy it, and we can't wait for some pictures.
