After we put in a few hours of beach time, we headed to the Polynesian Cultural Center.
It was so much fun and it made me sad that I didn't have some great cultural tradition. I basically can contribute big gulps to society. Maybe casseroles or microwave popcorn? I digress, it was beautiful and the church does an amazing job ensuring these cultures are celebrated.
Here is our little canoe tour of the various islands.
This is Darren in the male Taihitian dance. It was so packed I could only get an upward shot of Darren. The dance resembled an elaborate chicken dance.
Here we are before the lu'au began.
This is post lu'au - torrential downpour and Darren is over taking pictures. We are a tad wet here.
I would say the only bad thing was when it started to rain after the lu'au. Actually the rain wasn't the problem. The problem was I was wearing a dress and had to run through the rain to get to the final performance. It was a LOT of rain - the deep puddle kind. So I was wet, tired, and really really cold. Those fire dancers looked warm and I was a tad jealous that they got to handle fire. I knew I should have packed my Uggs.
