Did more of "nothing" this trip than ever before but when "nothing" is defined as staring at the ocean and waves and the sky and the stars - well, that makes "nothing" more than worth its while!
Discovered The Fresh Shave food truck in Lawai Valley on the Koloa side of the traffic light on highway. Extremely fine ice with toppings made from fruit purees and/or diced fruit instead of syrup! SOOOO good! (Heard there is another similar in Kilauea but didn't have time to try - many said it was even better which I can't imagine!)
Discovered Keoki's in Lihue. OMG. Went back for a second time which is saying a lot as there are so many great places on island. Teri Cheeseburger more than lived up to its reputation! (Have to mention, however, that on second visit, 20 minutes later, stomach disaster struck. Hubby had same item but bigger and he had no problems. Just can't rave about it without including that possible downside.)
Treat of the Trip = Rosealani Coffee Ice Cream with Koloa Rum Company Dark Fudge Rum Sauce on top! Yikes was that good!
Picnic on the bike trail, Koloa Plantation Days, Papa'a Bay, seeing Sea Turtles three times up on the sand (a first for us), dancing hula nearly every night. It was a great trip!
Sorry I didn't get to stop by, Janet, but we kept putting a trip to the Hyatt off until it too late! Long distance hugs and blessings to Mochi.
Sorry we didn't get to see you play, Shanty, but our plane was delayed and we arrived late and exhausted.
There's always a "next time" - thank goodness!
