Tonight Niamh led a bit of a sing-along in the bar. I got a chuckle out of her lyrics expressing her sadness at saying good-by to her Hawai'i/Michigan group. One line was "and I know you didn't get to see everything you wanted" said volumes about how I felt. To "see it all" is unrealistic in the time allotted and I do appreciate concessions were made on behalf of a mixed group but oh, what I would give for just one more castle or fairy ring... I truly think our time was maximized and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to join this tour. I cringe when people tell me they visited Hawai'i but when asked what islands they visited, the response is
"Waikiki". What a sad miss for as we all know, Waikiki is not representative of the Hawaiian experience!
