All Little Wickie favorites -- and in our favor, all mainstays on a vast majority of menus in Hawaii.
Okay, I've been to Hawaii at least a half a dozen times and have to ask: Did they always offer ice cream under your shave ice?! How could I have missed that before?
No one cared for my green tea and lychee shave ice, which I personally thought was delicious. More for me.
Papa Wickie was most happy at the Kaliua Farmers Market which I have to say was outstanding. A great mix of prepared food, baked and locally packaged foods and fresh produce.
He is STILL talking about the Ahi appetizer and Ahi entree he had that night.
In fact, later in the week the draw of food was the only reason he agreed to go to the flea market.
Mo loved the plethora of frog instruments to play with at the flea market.
We let Papa Wickie do a bit of shopping as well. He keeps talking about getting a SUP now. I'm not entirely sure where it would fit in our garage with the current bevy surfboards and bikes that already claim residence in there, but we'll see.
And, of course there was plenty more water play. We checked out the lagoons at Ko'Olina. The whole place was eerily man made and perfect (the Disney resort is one of the resorts adjacent to the lagoons).
But, there were fish to see and the kids really did like the lagoons.
Shark's Cove by just wading in the water.
And, after a good hike, we took a dip in the falls at Maunawili.
At the airport on the way home we had a celebrity sighting that went something like this.
The guy checking in our luggage: Hey, you see that haole over there with the yellow hat?
Guy: You watch the cooking channel?
Me: Not anymore, it makes me too hungry.
Guy: He's some famous guy from that channel.
Not to leave you in suspense, it was Guy Fieri. I, in fact, had no idea who he was (my culinary-trained sommelier brother did of course).
Man, I can't believe our vacation is over already...
