Did the Fern Grotto tour this morning. Not the most exciting thing to do, but it is a nice, relaxing couple of hours. You take a large tour boat upriver, followed by a short hike to the grotto. The guides rattle off the typical tour guide mix of facts, legends, and bad jokes. On the way back they teach you a few simple hula moves, and everyone sings along to a couple of songs (Tiny Bubbles, anyone?). Like I said, it was a nice respite from the more active activities.
Tonight there's a New year's Eve luau on the beach, with flaming torches, more hula dancers, and fireworks. I don't have time for much self-reflection on this trip, so I'll just say I hope everyone's 2011 is their best year ever.
Or at least better than 2010.
And maybe in the new year I'll be able to track down obama's birth certificate...
