20 October 2019 ~~ Day Nine

Early in the morning the ship moved to Pier Two, where we were originally scheduled to dock.  We were glad we weren’t there yesterday since it was considerably farther from WalMart.  We had a late brunch, and made our way to the pier.  It appeared that Uber drivers had to pick up passengers a bit farther away, so we took a cab to the Honolulu Elks Lodge.  We lucked out that it was Sunday.  Hubby indulged in football and I was able to catch up a bit thanks to a good internet connection.  I booked our flight to Perth and flights to and from Hobart, Tasmania and shared our plans with the friends who will pick us up there.

Once Hubby had OD’d on football we returned to the ship.  The Captain had come through with fresh leis for everyone!  That was a first!  The Lido had a beautiful display of colorful fresh fruit, Moonfish and an array of seafood delights . . . poke (a Hawaiian delicacy) made with tuna, salmon, shrimp, and scallops.  Per Wikipedia, “Poke is diced raw fish served either as an appetizer or as a main course and is one of the main dishes of Native Hawaiian cuisine.”  We fell in love with it on our first trip to Hawaii in 1981. 

Tonight’s entertainment was traditional and Tahitian hula and music provided by locals.  The ship wasn’t leaving port until eleven p.m., so we drifted off to sleep ready to wake up in Maui.
