Day 6 -- Hawaii

January 1, 2015
Happy New Year

We learned our lesson from the day before and we planned out our trip a little better.  First we went to Puukohola Heiou National Historic Site and we learned all about King Kamehameha and how he united the island tribes.  We saw the temple remains that he had his people build and it is referred to as “the hill of the whale.”  We continued to drive north and we saw the statue of King Kamehameha.  Unfortunately we struck out on the other places we were looking for.   We could not find them with our iPhones nor could we find signs along the highway. 

We gave up and went back to the hotel and sat in the hot tub until it was time for the luau.  At the luau we had lots of fun and met some new people from New Jersey and Washington State.   We drank mai-tais, we got stamped tattoos of turtles and we learned how to do the hula.  

The dinner was delicious and Joe ate all the cake.  The performance was wonderful and the evening was beautiful.  We could not ask for a better evening.  Oh and the best part of the luau was that is was free because our children had given it to us as an anniversary gift.
