Aloha everyone!

Today, following breakfast, I started my day with a yoga class at the park overlooking the beach, it was a nice way to start back into exercise....... Considering it has been 4 weeks of eating and tourist walking only! It was with beach sunset yoga Hawaii, (sunsetyogahawaii.com), the class consisted of regular yoga poses. If in Hawaii and planning to try it out, it would be useful if you are familiar with yoga and the techniques, as the class runs through with an assumption that you know what you are doing. If you are new to yoga, perhaps another class is best for you. They also run a sunset yoga class, check the schedule out on the website.

Can you see me below!!

Tonight we went to a Hawaiian luau dinner at Paradise Cove, the evening consisted of activities such as making a haku lei (flowers to wear on your wrist), spear throwing, Polynesian tattooing and many others. There were demonstrations such as how to do the hula, tiki carving, sarong tying....... There were Mai Tai's -I found another alcoholic drink I like (this is unusual for me as it didn't have cream and an umbrella in it!) and virgin piƱa coladas for the teens and off course a gigantic luau feast. We watched them lift the pig from the hot coals for the feast and while eating we watched a performance of hula dancing, fire twirling and different forms of dance from the islands. It was a nice evening, entertaining with a traditional Hawaiian Island feel.

Brings back fond memories of the luau. I remember Mike as a 19 year old in a grass skirt doing the Hula. Ha ha
