Food and Finds

Yesterday our first order of business was snorkeling. I didn’t get a picture. It’s hard to take pictures of snorkeling because I would have to leave my camera on the beach and I’m worried someone might take it. We didn’t spend a lot of time in the water anyway. It got choppy and cloudy, so we left early.

Our next stop was the swap meet. I also did not get any pictures of that. Lloyd was looking for a specific shave ice booth, but they weren’t there. He asked, and the neighboring booth said the shave ice guy was out of town. Dang.

By then, it was time for lunch. We went to Jack’s Inn. Curt got the quintessential Maui meal: loco moco. It’s rice topped with a hamburger patty, a fried egg, and gravy. He ate the whole thing. Good job, Curt!

Their gravy was delicious!

We went home for a nap. After our nap, we decided to take a long walk down the beach. The tide was high and the wind was blowing pretty hard, but it was nice anyway. Along our way, we made two amazing discoveries. One was a dead puffer fish. It was big.

Next, we stumbled upon the rare sea tire:

We walked far enough south that we could eat at a restaurant in Kihei called Stella Blues Cafe. It was good food. In fact, I think the caprese salad I had was the best I’ve ever tasted. The ingredients were in perfect balance.

So tasty.

So tasty.

By the time we walked home, it was 8:30, and we were TIRED! We showered and all went to our beds.

    Those are capers on that salad, right? Not tiny coconuts?

    Curt, you are amazing for eating that crazy dish! It seems to be a lazy casserole, so I can imagine that it would taste pretty good.

    That pufferfish freaks me out.

    The rare sea tire….HAHAHA!

    And that loco moco looks delicious! It’s something I could order. It has no cheese. Woo hoo! So many specialty dishes have cheese. Let’s hear it for less cheese, more gravy!

    Now, I need to take a nap just reading about all your adventures!

    Continue to enjoy fellas! The needle on my jealousy meter has gone haywire.
