We started the day off by going to the Swap Meet. It's official -- I'm not a swap meet kinda girl. Too hot, too much walking, I don't love to barter, all the junk starts to look the same, and you have to pay to get in. The kids were not thrilled with it either.
Later that day we went to Hanauma Bay, which wasn't my favorite for a lot of the same reasons. You have to pay to get in (all the other beaches are free, but this is a wildlife reserve so I guess they can charge) and too much walking!!! Especially if you get lost and go the wrong way. And even more so if you fall asleep on the way and are really cranky when you get there. That was me, not the kids.
After all the waiting and walking and paying, it was really pretty. Nate, Harrison and Faith snorkeled.
The cake and ice cream bribe was awarded in honor of Nathaniel's 11th birthday! Guava cake -- a local delicacy. Very delish!
In the morning, we went to Boots & Kimo for the much acclaimed Banana Pancakes with Macadamia Nut Sauce. So yummy. My goal is to figure it out so we can enjoy it here on the mainland. Then we went to Don Quijote (A Japanese market, naturally. Didn't the Spanish name give it away?) This is where we first encountered the culinary highlight of our trip -- MELONA BARS. I think these amazing melon-flavored ice cream bars deserve a post of their own. They're that good.
