With a full day in Waikiki there was time for some swimming from the famous Waikiki beach.

I think I'm getting better on the camera as well or at least learning it's different buttons more. Bit of light reading in free time. I feel like I'm gonna get some amazing sunset shots this year living on the pacific coast. I'm thinking I might buy another lens for it as ...
