Celebration where worlds collide redux   Considered a sacred place in Hawaiian legend, Black Rock at Kaanapali, Maui, is believed to be a place where ghosts or souls of the dead leap from this life to the next. Each day at sunset locals reenact the feat of Hawaiian King Kahekili, who ruled Hawaii for 45 years until 1794, when he made the leap from Black Rock and lived to tell about it. It was thought that only people of great spiritual strength could survive the fall.

Every year during late May thousands of people gather on the Ala Moana Beach in Hawaii to attend the annual Lantern Floating ceremony. Each lit lantern carries a message from the heart and it honours the loved ones that passed on. Last May over 40 000 of them were released to the ocean with the glorious sunset in the distance.
