For some reason, most of my pictures did not turn out, which is a great disappointment. I don't know what the problem was as I am not a photographer.
Gerry took this photo of me. It is not a good one with that frown. He bought me an orchid lei which I enjoyed and I wore it to church on Sunday. Several people asked if I had been home to Hawaii. I am wearing a black mu'u'mu'u that I bought on one of my trips home.
These next two pictures are part of the grand finale. The entire group is dancing a Tahitian dance. Tahitian is a difficult dance. It takes a lot of control of the muscles in the waist area and hips to be able to do the dance. They did a beautiful job.
I apologize for the darkness of this picture. This was the very youngest of the halau doing their number. This little girl, probably no older than 5 years old, had her arm in a cast and sling. She was doing the dance with just her left arm and was doing very well. Her sling matched her outfit. I hope you can see this.
