The trip we took to the Polynesian Culture Center is where we learned about other South Pacific cultures.  It was fascinating and entertaining.  Our eyes feasted on the  cornucopia of the colorful ethnic costumes.  
These are the "parade" floats of the different Polynesian nations.

Tonga

Hawai'i

Hi Scrappy Grams,

I don't drop by often enough due to a lack of a computer most times.
Thank you for coming by my blog and being so supportive.

I hope your upcoming weekend is great.

Take care, Viola
