Maui 2015 – Day 2

After a good night’s sleep (there’s something so fun about sleeping all together on a king bed) and a breakfast of oatmeal and fruit in the hotel room, we spent the morning poolside. I made use of the free wifi while D took Nomz swimming.

Then we picked up D’s Mom and headed to Waikapu for lunch at Kahili Restaurant located at the Kahili Golf Course. It was a bit overcast, but we had a sweeping view of the island from Haleakala to the Kihei coastline. Everytime I come here I am reminded of how beautiful Maui is, in a way that is so different from Oahu.

I had the Asian Chicken Salad with Kula greens, D had the Chicken Caesar Salad and Nomz had Chicken Tenders off the keiki (kids) menu:

For dessert we headed to Tasaka Guri Guri, where all of D’s childhood memories are frozen into a sweet treat in a cup. Guri guri is like sherbet, a little creamy, soft, and has a nostalgic flavor like candies of the past. They’ve been around forever (more than 100 years – they have a wikipedia page) and things are kept simple here.  There are only two flavors to choose from: strawberry and pineapple, there are no toppings of add-ons, and only cash is accepted.

We headed back to the hotel for a quick nap and we got a workout and a walk on the beach in too. Then we met up with FIL at the Dunes at Maui Lani Golf Course and putted around on the putting green. FIL even brought a mini putter for Nomz but she was more interested in lifting the flags from the holes. Dinner was at the Cafe O’Lei at the Dunes located right there at the golf course. The place was packed with locals enjoying their Saturday night and a Baldwin High School reunion group.

My Shrimp Linguine, Onion Soup En Croute, D’s Chicken Pasta:

    Nomz has grown up indeed and such a sweetie. So good that you are having a great mini vacation. The guri guri looks tasty. I have never heard of it. Many thanks for your posts. There is one happy Aussie reading them and greatly enjoying them. Makes me miss Hawaii bad though!!!
