Luau at Smith's Tropical Paradise

When we returned from the adventuresome Kalahua Trail hike Monday afternoon, we had a snack and got cleaned up for our Luau. The location for the Luau also included gardens that we toured with a short tram ride, then were able to walk around while we waited for the meal to begin. I decided to post mostly pictures of the flowers...

A young couple asked us to take their picture by the "Money Tree"
so they took ours also.
