Hawaii Part Four- A Little Culture

On our last day on Oahu we crammed in a couple tours on the Windward side. The Macadamia Nut Farm had a great tour that we enjoyed immensely (despite the POURING rain that accompanied our tour). These guys really brought to life the native Hawaiian history of the island. We didn't go to the Polynesian Cultural Center where things supposedly REALLY come to life, but this satisfied both our cultural hunger and our pocket book.

A little fire fun

The islander's way of cracking a coconut (I wonder what his Coconut Cupcakes would look like!)
Smart feral chickens who know what time the coconut falls
