I had lunch with friends at the Hau Tree Lanai in Waikiki on Saturday. It rained earlier in the morning, but by the time I got to the restaurant, the weather was very pleasant.
The restaurant got its name from the Hau trees that grow on the beach. Hence, the branches form a canopy over the tables (which is why I thought I would get wet if it rained). Click on the photos to enlarge them:
These friends are former high school classmates of mine:
This is my dear friend, Lynette, who said the photo taking was not complete unless she posed on the sand:
This is what I ordered, a papaya-chicken salad with fresh fruits:
We conversed about careers, travels, marriage, hobbies, and many other topics. I had such a good time that when I glanced at my watch, I was surprised to see that three hours had gone by. I brought home some of the fresh fruits from my plate, and David enjoyed them immensely.
Happy Mother’s Day!
