Here are the girls sunbathing on Waikiki but it wasn't long after I took this photo that people were literally towel by towel and we left!
The day we went on a day trip to the Polynesian Cultural Centre was a bit cloudy and windy, but we had a great day anyway.
Can you find me and D1 on the boat? D2 was looking over the side of the boat at everything! (Click to enlarge)
Here are the dancers entering into the area where they entertained us all.
D2 gets a hula lesson. I don't remember where D1 was.
And here is D2 again posing at the Cultural Centre.
Not to be outdone, D2 got right into the roots and sat down in the cool shade!
As you can see, we had a wonderful time in Hawaii and it was hard to return to reality. As I mentioned, D2 and I went to Mauii a few years later while D1 was studying at university. And I wouldn't mind returning to see Pearl Harbour some day and then go to one of the other islands for rest and relaxation. Everyone should take in Hawaii, if they can, but be prepared for the humidity!
Please forgive the quality of the photos, but they're almost 20 years old! Wow, where did the years go?
