Luau at Paradise Cove

If you visit Hawaii, you really must get yourself spruced up one evening and head out to experience yourself a Luau – Kalua Pig, hula dancing, and all kinds of lively, Hawaiian traditions.









Body paint









Spear throwing









Canoe rides








Cute kids













 Here they are lifting the kalua pig from the imu, an underground pit of lava rocks where they’ve roasted the unfortunate, yet delicious fellow all day.









Down at the beach, we found some more hula dancing while the fishermen cast their nets (in back, on the left) to pull in the Butter Fish…  delicious smothered in macadamian nut sauce.








Wahines (Hawaiian ladies) wear beautiful tropical flowers in their hair, around their necks, and as bracelets on their wrists and ankles.  If a wahine is taken she wears the flowers on her left side, and if she is single on her right.  However, if you see a lovely lady with flowers on both sides…watch out!  Flowers on her left and right sides means that she is taken, but looking for better!

Here we are all decked out in flowers and tribal paint.








  1. Oh my goodness, it looks like S and O were attached at the hip for most of the trip. Too cute!
