Waikiki and Luau, Hawaii
Sunday 12th August 2018
Our last full day for our grand adventure. It has just flown by. We had a lazy start to the day and headed out for breakfast. We ended up going to Shore Fire which had great choices – too many in fact. Phil settled on the scrambled eggs with mushrooms, capsicum, onion and other stuff too. I had pineapple pancakes. We ended up sharing half and half. We went for a walk along the beach and took some photos. It really is a most glorious place.
We headed back to the room to relax and update the blog. I sat on the balcony, with our partial ocean view. It was just so relaxing.
We had booked to go to the Paradise Cove Luau for our final night of our Grand Adventure. This was the perfect way to end our holiday. We were collected at a local hotel and taken to the venue. On our bus (bus 2) we met a couple from Melbourne – Katie and Tony who had a lot of things in common with us. We had a great time chatting to them.
We got a complimentary Mai Tai when we arrived and also a flower lei. We then went and had our seats assigned to us. We sat together and then explored the complex. It really is a beautiful venue. I took some photos of things that caught my eye.
Whilst we were chatting, the conch shell sounded as they were about to do the shower of flowers. This was just so gorgeous.
After this, we headed over to the amphitheatre where they were blessing the food and performing some dances.
The sun was setting as we took our seats for dinner.
The food was lovely and the company was amazing. The show started after dinner was finished. The show highlighted the cultures of Hawaii, Samoa and Tonga with traditional dances performed from all of these islands. It really was a beautiful show.
We had a great time here and it was a perfect end to our amazing holiday.
We got back to our room and packed our bags. We have a 6:15 am pick up for our 10:30 am flight home tomorrow.
It’s so hard to believe that 10 weeks could have flown by so fast – yet it has. We have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our holiday and have loved exploring all of these new places. We have met some amazing people on our journey and have enjoyed spending pieces of our holiday with some of the most special people in the world to us.
We are finishing this blog at Honolulu airport as we are about to board the Qantas flight home. We have had a fabulous time. Our next trip will be in October when we are off to Vietnam. I love school holidays!
