Oh what a lovely day to go for a swim in the Queen’s Bath. (photo: Andrew Doughty)

Hi Carumba! It’s gone!

It’s still there, but far too dangerous for a swim.


At the Lu’au

Hmmm I see some similarities here.

Imu Ceremony: the removal of a baked pig. It was delicious.
Halfway through our holiday we decided to attend a Hawaiian tradition the Lu’au. We were told (by more experienced island visitors) not to bother with the cheesy Lu’aus, but to be contrary I thought we should at least experience it once. Frankly, we had a great time. Even if the mai tais were watered down. Sorry fellas no pics of the hula girls.

Five Facts about the Hula
  1. Evolved as a means of worship, later becoming a forum for telling stories.
  2. The missionaries found the hula distasteful causing old style hula to be driven underground.
  3. Both men and women participate.
  4. Old style hula (also called 'olapa) takes years of training
  5. Kaua'i was the home of the most prestigious hula school in all the islands.
