4th of July - Thumbs up! =)

Posting a little late coz I got back in late. I will spare you a paddling image above and instead give ya a thumbs up on a terribly awesome day! Give a thumbs up back to the guardian angels that watch over the waters of Hawai'i for your ocean safety!

Anywayz, once a year, locals and visitors alike gather on the beaches of Waikiki to witness a truly hawaiian event - the Walter J. Macfarlane Memorial Canoe Surf race - except, this year, the ocean was as flat as bumpy pancakes.

Later in the evening, tens of thousands of people converged on the beach to marvel at the spectacular fireworks show.

[ View image gallery of the day and night events here ]

Give me a woot if you like the images - *smilez *

Well I guess when we're there in less than a month now (WOOHOO!) I'll have to give drowning a try at least ONCE! Can't pass by a chance to be rescued by such able-bodied rescuers! I just love a man in uniform, LOL! ;-)

I love your blog and the photos are terrific! It's like being in Hawaii myself (a place where I have never been)

I enjoyed your items about July 4th...although we don't celebrate it in France (our National Day is July 14th) I have mentioned July 4th several times in my forum and I have even registered the link of your blog (in "autres civilisations-USA)
