Today has been such a fun day! First, we hit the beach. I practiced a few cartwheels.....

Joy's not too good at flips, so she just ran....

We built sand castles...

Got our feet wet in the water...they actually called our room this morning to tell us it was not safe to be in the water today!

And, we looked for whales! Can you imagine?

Tonight, we went to a Feast. The "Feast at Lele" is similar to a luau. There are tables next to the beach, and food is served from each of the islands that came together to form the group of people known as Polynesians. The celebration continues as each of the island groups share the dances that originated in their islands.

Oh! My! These fruity drinks are so delicious!

We enjoyed watching the sun set during the feast!

Tomorrow...taking a boat early to find those whales! Don't have any idea what to do is we find them...just make a picture, I suppose.

FYI: I have the best daughter-in-love in the world! She is tops! She has fixed casseroles for those poor men we left behind, and tonight, she cooked supper for all of them at my house! She's checking on Pop since we are out of town and making sure he has what he needs! Suzanne, thank you, my dear! You're a gift from above. I love you!

How wonderful for you to know that your "guys" are in Suzanne's loving tender care and you don't have to worry about them.

It sounds (and looks) as if you and Joy are experiencing a truly dream vacation, Tonja. I look forward each day to hearing about it, and can't wait to hear about your whale adventure. Hope you see some and can get pictures to share!

Wow! Suzanne is the best!

I'm glad you're having so much fun and I must admit I'm a little envious! Have fun and enjoy being with Joy!

I know you two are having a fabulous time. Your pictures are so good and I love the ones *of you and Joy* doing various things!

You are blessed with a wonderful daughter-in-law!!!

I love Suzanne and I've never even met her!

So has it warmed up any?
