After our parasailing experience, we spent some time in town, visiting the Donkey Balls store, shopping in the souvenir shops, and sipping drinks on a lanai overlooking the sea. It was a lovely afternoon!
Finally, it was time for our luau. When we checked in, we received fresh flower and kukui nut leis and then made our way to the open-air luau grounds. We got to see the kalua pig emerge from the imu (underground oven) and then spent the next couple of hours enjoying the spectacular buffet and the outstanding entertainment in a truly beautiful setting. Jeff and I have been to several luaus in the past, and this one was by far our favorite.
