I woke up before the sun today. It was 6 a.m. and still pitch black out. In an hour I would be in the ocean swimming with the Masters group. Civil Defense had issued a high surf warning yesterday so I expected some swells for our morning swim. I wasn't disappointed and rough ocean is always fun and challenging to swim in.

With the rising sun, we were treated to lots of fish swimming below us in the dark, murky water. Well, it wasn't that dark but it was a little murky when we first started. If you have never swum in the ocean at sunrise, you really need to put that on your list of things to do in your life. It's an amazing feeling as your body and the world wake up in sync. The colors, the smells, and the beauty of nature. It's an incredible way to start off your day.

After our swim, I came home, grabbed my camera, jumped on my moped and headed down Alii Drive to get some photos.
Well, that's how I spent my morning. How'd you spend yours?
