Time for another recap!
Friday, July 29.
This morning started off like any other. A gorgeous run along the coast, a nice family breakfast, make lunches, get (swim) suits on, and head off for the day’s adventure.
Today we headed to Tunnels Beach!
The surrounding mountains were so green and gorgeous! Such a tropical look over on this side of the island.
It rained on and off throughout the day, but it was a nice warm, tropical rain. When it rained, we either took that time to throw the football around or get in the water. Our only concern was our books and cameras, but we managed to find a little hide-out under a huge pine tree that kept everything somewhat dry.
We also tried to find a house that Jamie’s mom likes. We went to the street, found the address, and everything about the drive there, and the street, were exactly as she had described. We were looking for a house that was white with turquoise trim, but didn’t see it. We did see a house that was very turquoise (or teal) with white trim, though, that happened to be the address, so we took pictures of it. We were a little weirded out by the lack of “For Sale” sign, though, and it looked lived in, so we didn’t really explore much. Jamie didn’t have the picture of the house with him, so we thought nothing of it. We later found out that there was a house with the address “393 A” that we somehow missed-we only saw the plain old 393. It was a strange (and funny, knowing my family) little adventure.
On the drive back to Poipu, we stopped for dinner at Hamura Saimin, which is supposed to be a really good Japanese noodle place. We wanted somewhere casual where our sandy, salty selves would be accepted. However, once we got there we realized there were absolutely no vegetarian options for Karen, so we continued on.
We finally ended up in Koloa, near our resort, and went to an Italian place called Pizzetta. Pizza sounded really good to everyone. I got the Mina Mo (olives, mushrooms, goat cheese) in calzone form, asking them to leave out the mozzarella. It was quite tasty, although definitely not the best calzone I’ve had. Considering a long day in the water and sun, though, it was perfect.
After dinner, which was pretty late, we headed back to our room to call it a night.
