Dear KGirl,
Here is a picture of the canoe we bought on Kauai at Kilohana Ranch as it looked like us after our canoe trip LOL
Your story about packing reminded us of the chicken we brought back from South America. Fortunately we did have bubble wrap.

Dear KGirl, I could not find this photo fast enough to include it in my post. This picture was taken at the Museum in Auckland. Your little canoe is a perfect replica!

Beautiful canoe, K-Girl. (Yours are neat, too, Souschef.) It should provide DH with many hours of happy mental sailing.

Certainly the Polynesian people are all interconnected. We are so fortunate to have traveled much of the South Pacific, and it holds so many wonderful memories for us.

And the chicken was OK afterwards? I'd figure a chicken could make easy work of bubble wrap. Just a-peckin' here and there..

Maybe my wife is right. Maybe we CAN bubble wrap our son and send him out into the world, and he'll be ok.

Nevermind.

We went over to Young's Fish Market in Kalihi, our favorite for Hawaiian

I always request day old Poi and Hawaiian Rock Salt, it has real flavor as apposed to fresh Poi, kinda bland--- which is why folks feel that it tastes like library paste--- try old Poi and Salt!

Pork Lau Lau-these puppies have got to weigh in at 3 pounds, easy.
They make theirs with a fantastic ratio of meat to Taro leaves, then steam them to perfection--- I was going to bring some home, but DH vetoed that idea

Young's tag line "Wow Lau Lau" `cuz theirs really is the best!

Ya know, some dishes I've learned how to make, such as Kalua Pork and Lomi Lomi Salmon (I have a recipe for Pipikaula, haven't tried it), but this other stuff, no can do braddahs and sistahs--- gotta go Young's!

I was looking this post over and ya know, I started to think about my younger sister who moved away from Hawaii LONG before I did... she loves opihi, but would take her thumb nail and squeeze out the stomach of the opihi and eat the mussel only... just a thought that came to me ...

were much bigger than when we were here last,

Many of our evenings were spent having dinner on our lanai,
mostly fish of some sort and maybe some tidbits leftover
from lunch out...

Above is DH's plate (the second photo) of
Mussel Poke, Ahi Hawaiian Style Poke (with inamona-kukui nut),
Kalua Pig, Lomi Lomi Salmon, and Japanese Cucumber quick Kim Chee

My plate is only different as I don't have Mussel or Ahi,
but Garlic Shrimp Poke

(sorry that it comes out side ways)
My plate is in the foreground, Chili with Rice and Fried Chicken and of course I must have their Mac Salad! DH had the Chicken plate with French Fries... very happy

There's a location just up the street from the apartment, so we went there to have lunch; next to Foodland for provisions and then we met the rental agent at the apartment lobby to the keys from her.
I wanted to share this article with you all ...
