Eating always makes me hungry, so after sharing a sandwich we hit up the Shark Pit food truck.
|Shark Pit food truck.|
It has 5 out of 5 stars on Yelp and I'm not sure why. The food was decent, but we all agreed it was short of spectacular. You can bring your own beer, which is a plus.
|Fish tacos and fried rice. Just ok, and overpriced at $12.|
This is corn with some sort of seaweed flake topping and sauce. It was pretty good, again, a little overpriced. I come from a line of corn farmers and an expert on corn, so my assessments are actually quite valuable, as evidenced by the $20 bill sitting underneath the tacos in the pic above.
This corn was good, but frankly I prefer my corn to have been blessed by Jerky.
Spent the day at a beach in Napili. Not too shabby.
|Don't worry. We waited 30 minutes after corn consumption before swimming.|
Snagged some shaved ice and ice cream from Local Boys Shaved Ice in Lahaina.
|Tanya, ready for shaved ice!|
|Overwhelmed by all the flavor combinations.|
|Doug excited for shaved ice, and local tourist excited for Doug.|
|Doug contemplating the deliciousness.|
Tanya told me that all these trees are actually just one tree - pretty neat.
Local fruit picnic on another grassy beach knoll, only slightly dampened by a huge pointy stick that got jabbed in to my big toe.
|Passion Fruit. Looks revolting, tastes amazing.|
|Toe injury. No, that black dot is not sand - it's a serious puncture wound.|
On the drive home there was an amazing sunset, and whales! It's been years since I've seen whales so it was super cool. Rather than getting amazing shots of the whales and sunset I opted to get a shot of all the tourists, taking shots of whales and sunsets.
Dinner tonight was courtesy Betty, who did the neatest, most beautiful carve job of a Costco rotisserie chicken I've ever seen.
Good times and good people.
So what about you? Toes doing OK? Got a favorite shaved ice flavor? Like talking about corn and corn-related accessories? Every try a fresh passion fruit or coconut?
