Picnic at the Beach

Tonight the families all got together for a picnic at the beach next to the Hilton. The Hilton puts on a hula show and fireworks afterwards. I remember coming here for a similar picnic a long time ago. I had forgotten how nice a beach it is considering how close it is to the hotel and well... it's Waikiki after all. One thng about the park and its picnic area there are a lot of trees that birds roost at and most of the picnic tables are right under the trees... where the birds roost... You have to be careful where you park yourself, I was going to take a picture of a bird just when it unloaded. I was so surprised that I didn't even think to take the picture but then again who would want that picture...
Here are the families getting situated and getting their food when Minnie spotted a bird getting ready to make a deposit...

As soon as the fireworks show ended, 2 performers started a pyrotechnic show of their own for donations.

After a little more eating and cleaning up we packed it up and called it a night.
