Today we had a chill day. Pants & I laid by the pool for a bit this morning to catch some rays, then me, lil sis and my parents went to shop in Kapa'a (the town not far from here). There were some nice jewelry stores, some touristy stores and a cool farmers market that we hit up. We had shave ice whilst we shopped (the Hawaaiin snow cone) and at the farmers market we bought an ice cold coconut! They open it up for you and you can drink the coconut milk, then you give it back to them and they cut out all the coconut fruit from the inside and put it in a bag for you to eat. Much to my dismay, coconut milk from inside the coconut is clear! And it tastes kinda like sweet milk. The fruit I really enjoyed - it was coconuty but not too intense of a flavor. Then we came home & my sous chef (lil sis) and I made pasta & caeser salad for a lovely dinner. Now we are going to watch the movie Wall Street and tomorrow we are going scuba diving which makes me super duper excited. I feel much better since last week when I felt like death...but unfortunately I can't say the same for my pops. He is a little under the weather...sorry for passing it along dad :(
Photos from the day...
|We went to a glass blowing store in which all the art was absolutley gorgeous! This was my favorite piece because of its size and colors. When I win the lottery I will purchase it! (it was almost $6000)|
|Eating our shave ice - mine was strawberry, raspberry & passion fruit.|
|Drinking coconut milk!|
|A cool hairy fruit from the same stand that sold us the coconut. I don't remember what they are called but they are from the lychee family.|
