Mahalo to Nancy Roberts for sharing her lovely photo with us for Aloha Friday Photo.

Nancy’s photo is of Hulopoe Bay on Lana’i. If I’m not mistaken, I believe her photo was taken before sunrise.

As Nancy shared her photo, she said, “We miss Lanai everyday!” We know how Nancy feels!

Happy Aloha Friday!
