Today we had a fantastic day. We went snorkeling twice, ate pie at Ted’s bakery and I enjoyed my first dole whip at Dole plantation.
I’ll get to the dole whip soon. I started the day with a repeat of yesterday’s breakfast, chorizo spam with fried eggs and cheese.
After breakfast we went for our first snorkel of the day. We walked to Kuilima Cove and jumped right in. The water was a perfect temperature albeit a little murky. The tide was out so it was fairly shallow. We could easily sea brightly coloured coral, lots of fish and other sea life like sea cucumbers. I shot these images with a Nikon All Weather camera. I couldn’t see the LCD screen while I was underwater. The sun glare was significant and after I downloaded the images I discovered many of them were unusable because I hadn’t of all things aimed the camera very well. I need to point it deeper. Some of the video was hilarious (not) because I ended up with heads of fish swimming away rather than the whole fish because I wasn’t pointing deeply enough. I tried to shoot a few sea cucumbers with their castings but none of the images were very good.
For lunch we went to Ted’s Bakery again like we did yesterday only this time we had sandwiches 🙂
I went for a crab and bacon sandwich followed by a pumpkin haupia cream pie. Again I stuck my label to the umbrella pole. I love pumpkin pie. I wish had it more in Australia.
After lunch we went to the Dole Plantation to do the maze and eat a dole whip 😀
The maze is amazing (see what I did there?) I reckon the walls should have been made with maize too 😀
We took about an hour to complete it.
The dole whip is truly a heavenly treat, I really liked my dole whip in a cup with extra pineapple.
After Dole plantation we went snorkeling again and saw more fish. The water was a little murkier but it was deeper with a higher tide.
For dinner this evening I cooked Hawaiian curry salmon with some chorizo spam and then had a Ted’s Bakery Queensland nut pie with Haupia pudding for dessert.
