Lovely floating lanterns

floating-lantern-beautiful

Isn't this picture beautiful? Over 1,000 candlelit paper lanterns get released into the waters at twilight during Honolulu's Toro Nagashi ceremony to honor loved ones who have passed away. The writing on the inside of the lanterns are personal messages.
