Hawaii - Day Six - Polynesian Cultural Center

This was the day for the Polynesian Cultural Center. What a day!

As you can see President and Sister Hinckley visited PPC on it's 40th anniversary.

On the way there we stopped to see the turtles.

John and Karen showed us where they were on Sunday, but we didn't stop that day.

We didn't see any turtles on the beach but did see one in the water just a few feet from us. It was fun watching it. People were snorkeling next to them.

Then we went over to the beautiful Hawaiian LDS Temple. The grounds and waterfalls and pools are just gorgeous. We stopped in the visitor center and had a nice visit with a couple there and another missionary sister who showed us a film.

We intended to go by BYU Hawaii where Karen works but time didn't allow.

We spent a wonderful day at the Polynesian Center, from 11:00 AM until 10:00 PM and after a very long day headed back home.

We would have been there 30 minutes earlier but we got a little lost, and took a wrong turn that was taking us back where we had just come from. We figured it out fast and turned around.

John was up waiting for us. Karen has to go to bed early because she leaves for work at 4:30. They live an hour away from the college.

We'd had a big day. And we slept well!
