New Year's Day 2011

Fireworks on the Beach - New Year's 2011!

It was cold and very windy yesterday, so I opted to spend the evening at home - and was in bed and reading by 10:30 p.m.  But come midnight it sounded like the island of Okinawa was under attack.  Some local celebrants shot off ten minutes of expensive fireworks on the beach just a block or two from my apartment.  The following pictures were taken from my bedroom window!

The Big Bang - Okinawan Style!
Happy 2011!  May it be the best year ever - and the year that the wars end!
