Looking down on the North Shore and the Pacific Ocean:
School Bus with a view - just another beautiful day in Hawaii.
I headed out with Sydney's 4th grade class on a field trip to the Polynesian Cultural Center
It's easy to see why this place is one of the top tourist sites in Hawaii. Clean, educational, and Great Service! When one of the students in our boat lost her hat, our Paddle Boy was nice enough to back up and fish it out for her. He didn't look very Polynesian, but he did have a lovely Australian accent.
Is Sydney hiding behind her passport?
I made sure to get a picture or two of each child in Sydney's class - what cute kids! It might not be okay for me to post them on the internet, though, so I tried to make sure I got a good one of Sydney that I could post. But she wasn't interested.
Malo e Lelei from Tonga!
The Tongan Show is one of our favorites at the PCC, and though today was more educational then the usual performance, it was still fun!
Talofa from Samoa. Did you know that Samoa is pronounced SAH-moa. Not suh-MOA?
I'm not sure if teaching a bunch of 9 year olds how to make fire with two sticks you can find in your backyard is such a great idea!
As we left the PCC the tourists were lining up to head in. We seemed to catch them a little off guard, and I could imagine them thinking, "That's right...regular people with real children do live in Hawaii."
What a cool place to be.
Happy Aloha Friday!
