The last night in Hawaii didn't go off as planned.
I was to take a date on a sunset dinner cruise, but due to high winds and choppy seas, the cruise was canceled. That was disappointing.
We did manage to salvage the evening. We all went to Romano's Macaroni Grill a couple of blocks away from our hotel. There, we enjoyed some fine Italian food and the restaurant's staff gave one of our party a little celebration of her birthday.
After dinner, we prepared for tomorrow's departure. I decided to wander around the hotel's grounds where a luau was being held. At the time I observed (and photographed) the luau, they were having their "audience participation" portion of the show.
