Day 112: Ono, No-No

Laetitia took her group on a submarine ride that provided some nice views of tropical fish. There were some especially interesting ones around some small ships that had been sunk to provide fish habitat. In the afternoon, several of the group went shopping before they reconvened at the beachside restaurant of the Moana Hotel (now Moana Surfrider), the oldest hotel on Waikiki beach. Brad, one group member, had had the Hawaiian fish ono on a previous trip and wanted to have it again. Unfortunately, it was not on the menu, but his desire provided the limerick of the day.

In the Islands, Brad’s favorite dish
Was ono, the Hawaiian fish
But when he ordered ono
The waiter said, “no-no,”
And so he did not get his wish.
