The idea is to take an umbrella drink (or a beer...) down to the water and watch the sun go down. It is like a huge competition to see who witnesses the green flash. We could actually name the event, "Hawaii Wavelength Watchers" or something like that... (Ocean = Waves, Green Flash = "longest" wavelength to be seen as the sun dips under the horizon. Sorry I had to explain...)
After the storm, the green flash was hidden behind clouds, but it made for a beautiful sky and the alpen-glow was truly magical.
