We stayed a little closer to ‘home’, making arrangements for a tour in a few days as the first order of the day. By the time we’d searched out a visitor center and made our plans, it was time for lunch. We chose to look for a restaurant that would serve local-style food – and found this:
It’s called lau-lau – pork steamed in sea-weed. It’s served with rice, which is hard to see here as it was presented in a modern styrofoam container. But it really was delicious!
Then we drove toward Wailea just to see what there was to see.
After driving through golf course/country club area, we came to Makena Landing, once a harbor for ships transporting goods, produce, animals and people between islands.
This looked like a good place for snorkeling – earlier in the day before the winds come up:
We’d picked up a waterproof camera, so when we rent some gear, we’re all set.
We came to Ahihi-Kunau natural preserve: where, despite the passing of hundreds of years since the volcanoes have been active, the lava is still rendering the landscape barren:
And so ends another day enjoying the unique glories of Hawaii!
Happy touring! Blessings, Peg
