Luau Luck


I'm still not quilting.  I still have company.  It will be three more days until I'm independant again, but we are having fun sightseeing.  Do you ever sightsee in your own community?  I know it is easy here in Hawaii, but I try to "explore" everywhere we live. 

Last night we went to a luau.  No, we don't go to them often.  In fact, in the nearly three years we have been here, we have only gone to 4.  This one was a new place for us.  We went to Paradise Cove.  I liked the setting, activities, and show better than the other one we go to, but the food wasn't as good.  But, you really don't go to a luau for the food...

Here is a factoid about me:  I was born and raised in the lovely state of South Dakota.  At the luau we started visiting with the charming couple across the table from us.  She is from South Dakota, too!!!  And not only that, everyone, but she is a quilter, too!  Wasn't it lucky?  They have also lived in Alaska, but they were there a year after we left.  We had lots to talk about.  Too bad the show started, LOL.

Today we visited the zoo and are hopefully going to catch sunset at the beach tonight.  The sunsets we have had lately have not been the best.  Hopefully we will have some color tonight.  And hopefully we will find some beach glass, too.



  1. We went to that luau, too, about 10 years ago! It was fabulous, and the dancers were SO good! Yeah, the food isn't the draw, but everything else was really fun!

  2. Sounds like a lovely day...any luck finding the beach glass?
