This blog post is about activities on Thursday, September 6th.
From Waimea we drove to the Mauna Lani Resort, along the Kohala Coast, where we attended a free Polynesian Hula show at the Shops at Mauna Lani. Dancers (male and female) performed a series of acts in colorful costumes on a stage set above a water fountain. Live music accompanied the dancers. A female narrator shared with us stories of their ancestors, the natives of Hawaii. The show culminated in a fire dance performed by a young boy.
Here is a slideshow of photographs that I took during the hula show.
After the Hula show we ate dinner in Waikoloa Beach Resort, which was located about 4 miles south of the Mauna Lani Resort. There are two shopping areas at Waikoloa Beach Resort: Queens’ MarketPlace and Kings’ Shops. We had fish and chips at the Island Fish and Chips, located at Kings’ Shops.
This completes the activities of Thursday, September 6th — our fifth full day in Hawaii.
