Day 8 Honeymoon

Day 8 we finally go to go snorkeling! We had a pretty relaxing day on day 8. With only 2 days left we decided to rest up a bit. We hung around the house for a little and then went snorkeling to first to 'Anaeho'omalu Bay otherwise known as A-bay. After our 2 mile hike to this beach, there was coral everywhere, it wasn't comfortable to walk on at all. I really wasn't comfortable with this beach because there was coral everywhere, and the water was filled with huge boulders. Which could of made for good snorkeling, but there was no on there but us, so we decided to go back to Beach 69. Chris of course went in right away, I'm really scared of the ocean. Not so much the fish, but I'm always worried a shark is going to come. So it took me awhile to get comfortable in the water. We didn't get any pics of course, beause we didn't have an underwater camera. We saw lots of pretty fish and a huge parrott fish, Chris who scuba dives said that he has never seen one that big. After snorkeling we headed back home to hang out in the pool and hot tub the rest of the day till it was time to go to the Luau. We went to the Royal Kona Resort Luau. We paid 5 dollars more to be VIP. It was worth it, because there was about 400 people, so we were the first table to go and get our food. They had SO many different luau foods. All of it was really good. The main courses were kalua pug, fresh island fish,luau chicken, and pulehu beef, with hawiian sweet potatoes which are purple, rice, vegatables, poi, lomi lomi salmon, taro and coconut rolls. For desert they had coconut cake and pinapple upside down cake. Of course we had some piggie, I didn't watch the poor little guy come out from the imu(underground oven) but Chris got pictures from that. The fun part of the luau wasn't just the dancer. When we called to reserve our spot, Chris had told them that we were on our honeymoon, so in the middle of the show, the Master of Ceremony, said "Let's celebrate love or something, and he started naming couples that were on their honeymoons, well guess who was first! Chris and I. There was about 6 other couples and they made us go in front of everyone at the luau, remind you that there was about 400 people there and dance to a song. It was fun, but silly.
