Mahalo to Cheryl Decoopman for sharing this photo with us for our Aloha Friday Photo series. Cheryl shared this about her photo:

We had a wonderful trip back in September. This is one of my favourite pictures from our vacation! We were on the Alii Kai Catamaran Dinner Cruise in Oahu, and the sunset hit the boat at the perfect spot!

I would add perfect timing, too, Cheryl!

Happy Aloha Friday!
