Waikiki Sailboats

Buzzword Bingo Buzzkill

Well, in my last post, I put out something I thought was rather clever and fun.  Since then - out of curiosity - I decided to Google the words, "buzzword bingo" and all kinds of stuff popped up.  There is this one link that will do all of the work for you as far as juggling the words and putting out nice cards.  Check it out...It kind of put my little bingo idea to shame.  What a buzzkill!  Oh well, it was fun while it lasted...  Maybe I should've checked Google before I posted?

Waikiki Sailboats

It's cold in almost every part of the country this time if year, except for maybe parts of California, Florida and all of Hawaii.  It can even get quite cold here in Texas.  Most of the winter it's quite mild, but we do get the occasional ice storm as well as a few freezes.  So, when weather changes like this take place, I like to post something taken from a different climate.  So, that's where this picture comes in.

A few years ago, we took a trip to Hawaii and stayed at a great hotel on Waikiki Beach.  As soon as we got to that hotel, we ran out to the beach to take in the view.  Way out in the water were all of these sailboats and stand-up paddle boarders (if that's what they are called).  I thought it was just so cool and awesome!  Nothing like being on the beach in Waikiki watching sailboats!

One thing about this shot though... I took this before I got super serious with photography and got my DSLR.  I just took it with my little Lumix DMC-TZ5 and I cropped it a little and converted it to black and white. I still like it, though and I hope you do, too!

Oh, and lastly, we plan on taking another trip to Hawaii sometime this year and I will have my super serious DSLR with me to get some great shots!  I can't wait!  Even if I wasn't into photography, I still couldn't wait!  It's Hawaii!!!  Hang loose!!!
