Hawaii - Day 13

We spent the earlier part of Tuesday just resting and taking it easy. Rebecca and Danny had a taste of parenthood with borrowed kids.
Joy-Anne slept comfortably on Danny's well-cushioned chest.

In the evening, we all went out to Germaine's Luau.

I learnt that luau (pronounced lu-aw) means a hawaiian party. But if you pronounce it wrongly like in lu-aah, it means the bathroom/toilet. So when saying "I had a great time at the luau"...be careful to pronounce it correctly.

Germaine's Luau is located on the south-western part of Oahu at Ewa Beach. The ocean front was a lovely setting. We arrived there early and had a good time taking pictures.

And we tried some Bollywood poses too.
Joe was quite cooperative with the photo-taking most of the time.

Before the buffet, we saw the Imu ceremony. Imu is the underground oven from which they took out a huge pig that had been roasting in it all day.
Joe gave the Blue Hawaii (the non-alcoholic version, of course) two thumbs up.
Food was abundant and pretty good.
The sunset was lovely. My photo-taking skills don't do it justice.
We shared a few drinks...margarita, pina colada.... This is probably the first time I've really had some alcohol. No effects though.
We got back at about 10pm. It was a good evening.
