Hawaii - Day 3

Day 3 in Hawaii is winding down and it has been a good day. I woke up this morning to catch the Tour and have breakfast and then my mom and I headed out for a run. We ran from the house down to the beach and then ran along the beachfront path which was gorgeous. The sun was shining and it was kinda raining and it was fabulous. We met my dad at one of the lagoons and then headed back to the house.

My parents headed to the pool and I headed to the shower. After the shower, we went to grab some Chinese. I had some fabulous curry chicken and since I never get to eat curry I was thoroughly enjoyed it. After lunch, we headed to the Dole Pineapple Plantation. My dad and I are standing by the pineapple patch in the picture. We watched the "how to cut a pineapple" demo and got to eat some YUMMY fresh pineapple, as well as some pineapple soft serve ice cream. We shopped a little and I bought the best candy bar I've ever had. It was a dark chocolate Kona coffee macadamian nut bar and I'm going to have to buy like 25 or something to eat over the next year.

On the way home, we stopped at a roadside stand and bought some fresh ahi tuna, which my dad grilled for dinner. It was delicious. We also bought some smoked beef which has a really great flavor, although it is a bit gnarly. Tomorrow we head back to Honolulu to pick up my brothers and their wives and kids, and while I will have to move to the couch, it will be so fun to have them here.
