We are home from the land of Tiki's and what a good adventure we had. We shopped to our hearts content, lazed on more beaches, took the kids to some new movies, ate some good fish, saw another volcano and all in all had a nice time. Coming from Noumea it always takes us a little while to get into the swing of a busy place. We have to get used to lots of people being around and lots to stop and look at and this makes things take a bit longer but that's ok because we are on holidays.
We visited two zoo's while we were away. One in Hilo which was a rainforest zoo. It had beautiful gardens and lots of colourful birds then we went to Honolulus zoo. It was ok but not great but we did get to see these fabulous flamingos. They are fascinating creatures all legs and necks. Django and I stood watching them for far too long time. We were fascinated with what they could do with said necks and heads.
I won't go on today but feed you in slow dribbles about stuff we got up to. One of the things the kids did love doing was sitting at the counter of a very old diner. We went in mostly because of the look of the place. The kids wanted milkshakes and boy did they get them. They were big and tasty and the kids are still talking about them. We ended up going back to have pancakes there later on the same day just because they wanted to sit back at the counter. The pancakes were equally as good as the milkshakes.
