Today, most of us went surfing! We caught some amazing waves and had lots of fun; some got big rashes from rubbing on the surf boards (especially Kyle, his whole stomach was red). Everyone did amazing! After, we all had breakfast and went to Pohai Nani Good Samaritan Retirement Community. We had an interesting concert. Everyone appreciated our love and talent of ukulele, which made it an amazing concert. After that concert, we packed up, met a few interesting new people and left for Enchanted Lake Elementary for our next concert. We set up and then had an amazing lunch organized by Aunty Lin and Uncle Mel and we sat and met some kids who were really excited to meet us. The best part of that concert was when we were playing Crazy G. Nicole, Ethan, and Tina were explaining to the students about when to yell (to make the song go faster). When Tina practiced turning around, they screamed like crazy! When they were 'supposed' to be quiet, they were still screaming like crazy.
After that, we went to the ocean. The view was so beautiful and the water was this cool shade of blue. Some of us built sand castles, others played football, and then went into the waves for some swimming! After the beach, we went to get shaved ice from Island Snow (President Obama's favourite shave ice store). It was so good! On the bottom, there was vanilla ice cream and then there was shaved ice with the syrup of our choice! We all enjoyed it so much. There were flavours like Snazberry and Godzilla Grape and a whole bunch of other silly names!
After we finished our delicious shaved ice's, we went to Fat Boy's Bistro for our final concert of the day (three in total!). We delivered the gear and had this free and really amazing dinner there! We played a great show for a really appreciative crowd that had actually paid $15 per person to be there! Our final song before the "Hana Ho" (encore) was Hawaii Aloha (regarded as the second national anthem for Hawaii). The crowd stood and held hands while singing to our rendition. It was truly an incredible feeling of warmth and "Ohana" (family). We listened to Uncle Mel's band to end the evening and had a nice ride back to our cozy little hotel in Waikiki!
