Our final day back in Honolulu.

Looking out from our balcony.

Waikiki Beach... or is it Fort Lauderdale?

They both look the same to me.

We fill our bellies with ramen.

And follow it up with some takoyaki.
(Japanese pancake balls with octopus).

Former Miss Hawaii Kanoe Miller enchants the audience with a mesmerizing hula dance at House Without a Key.

After the hula performance, we lucked out and caught a
fireworks show honoring a Japanese makeup company.
