Photographer's Note

Today, we have turned our gaze a few degrees to the right from yesterday's photo and are looking at Waikiki, which gets its name from springs and streams that fed wetlands that once separated it from the interior. Waikīkī means spouting fresh water in Hawaiian. This area was a retreat for Hawaiian royalty in the 1800s who enjoyed surfing there on early forms of longboards. Waikiki was introduced to the world when its first hotel, the Moana Surfrider, was built on its shores in 1901. Today, Waikiki is Oahus main hotel and resort area and a vibrant gathering place for visitors from around the world.

Bugn, bakışımızı dnk fotoğraftan birka derece sağa dndrdk ve adını bir zamanlar onu i blgeden ayıran sulak alanları besleyen kaynaklar ve akarsulardan alan Waikikiye bakıyoruz. Waikiki Hawaiicede fışkıran tatlı su demektir. Bu alan 1800'lerde ilk tarz longboardları (uzun srfler) ile orada srf tadını ıkaran Hawaii kraliyet ailesi iin bir inziva yeriydi. Waikiki ilk oteli Moana Surfrider'ın 1901 yılında kıyısında inşa edilmesiyle dnyaya tanıtıldı. Bugn, Waikiki Oahunun ana otel ve resort alanıdır ve dnyanın drt bir yanından gelen ziyaretiler iin enerjik bir toplanma yeridir.
