I have to tell you, the moment I saw this photo on my friend’s Facebook feed I was absolutely awestruck.
Naturally, I complimented her on this remarkable photo of what I easily recognized as Waikiki Beach at Oahu, Hawaii.
My friend told me that her 10 year old daughter, Livia, took the photo on an iPad. Pretty incredible eh?!!
I made Livia an offer and paid her for the use of her photo on my blog. I told her that I’d love to show her talent to the world. Aren’t you glad I did?
I asked Livia if she had a review of the hotel or anything to tell our readers about Waikiki Beach or Honolulu. She reported that her family really liked their hotel, the Outrigger Reef. It had a fantastic location, view of the ocean, crafts, activities and even a Starbucks! One more unique offering of the Outrigger Reef is that twice a week, at sunrise, they do a complimentary vow renewal ceremony for couples. (Wow!! That’s something I had never heard about before. Livia’s going to make a brilliant travel writer AND professional photographer someday!)
Special sincere thanks to Livia & her family for sharing this brilliant photo & glimpse into their family holiday.
