Hui Nalu Canoe Blessing

[ Click on above image to enlarge ]

This is actually my first "official" photo posting for this blog site since I barrowed some material from my other blog to get this blog site active ... So, here it is :P
First, I'd like to say mahalo (thanks) to Denton of DailyPhotoMap for assisting me in getting started since I am new to this blog community thingy and have a lot to learn. Mahalo nui loa to Eric from Paris for getting this all started! A great concept of sharing from around the world. I was very surprised and grateful by the amount of responses already. Photography is one of my favorite hobbies when I am not studying, working, coaching kids, or playing outdoors. I have been very impressed with the quality of the photographs that I've had the chance to view. This is very kewl!


About the photo above: This photo was taken this afternoon at 5 PM at Maunalua Bay in Hawai'i Kai. Hui Nalu Canoe Club was having a canoe blessing. Loosely translated, "hui" means club and "nalu" means surf. In hawaiian tradition, the canoe is treated as a living entity with a spirit of its own and thus the special care in the birth of a new canoe. Today is the females scheduled practice day and thus why most of the people in the photo are females. If you click on the image, you can get a better view! :)

Thanks Nicholas for acknowledging my assistance. You will find all the DP bloggers are great and more than willing to jump in to help. Michael is right, Eric's Paris DP concept covers the globe now. It will be interesting to see how far it goes.
