I haven't met very many people who don't consider eating a great part of being on vacation. We like to stay at Bed and Breakfasts. Our hostess this trip gave us so much food for each breakfast that we usually took some with us for a mid-morning snack on our road trips around the island. I shared pictures in this post.
I showed one of our favorite lunch spots in an earlier post - the Coffee Shack. We were so happy to see that it was still there ten years later, with the soup and sandwich menu just as wonderful. We made it back there twice.

Cute little visitor - we could have done a Geicko insurance commercial!
There was another place we loved ten years ago - The Keei Cafe. It was a little tiny place in a run down little building by the side of the road. We tried it because it was recommended by our hostess at The Dragonfly Ranch, where we stayed that year. We were really glad she recommended it, because it was not the kind of place we would have stopped, most likely. DC had the best pork chops ever, and had never forgotten them. We asked around and found out that they had moved up in the world, and were now down the road in a classier spot.
We knew we had to go there again, and were really glad we did. We were so pleased to learn that the same Brazilian chefs were still there, as was the same head waiter. We asked him about the history of their move. He pointed out that there was a picture of the old place on the wall:
At that time, when they were just getting started, they had 8 of those white plastic tables and chairs - the kind you buy at Wal-Mart for your patio. I had remembered it as even smaller than that. But they have really come up in the world - now their furniture is made from koa wood - the wood that DC loves to buy as souvenirs. It was just beautiful, and the food was still wonderful.
One day we decided to go to Safeway and buy picnic food. We went back to the great spot we'd discovered the first day (the same place I hurt myself). This created a much nicer memory!
I very carefully went into the water, warm enough for a bath. I was really paranoid about turning my ankle again.
One of our last days, we took the trip to the southernmost point of the U.S. We ate that afternoon in the southernmost restaurant. Very good food, very interesting little place - nothing fancy, but lots of personality.
Thanks for coming along with me once again. I hope to finish in about two more sessions!
