Road Trip, Small Kine

The Cat wanted to light a candle at Sunset Beach for her father. Small kine road trip.

The View

Despite windy conditions, we were able to light the candle for a little while.

The Candle

Since we were out there, a little lunch at a gastropub.


A sample.

Salmon Salad

Grilled salmon, candied walnuts, sliced pear. Veggies! Hee hee.

Shrimp Po’ Boy

Sweet potato fries, avocado, lots of cole slaw. Lots of cole slaw, balance slightly off. Still good though. 🙂

Beer Battered Fish and Chips

Typical gastropub fare. Not bad. Place had malt vinegar, good sign.

Too full, missed out on the pecan bread pudding. Oh well, maybe next road trip.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Kona, bought pastries at neighborhood bakery, fruits from grocery store. The Mouse served as prep cook.

Papaya, Strawberries, Watermelon

A carton of oatmilk, and pop the pastries in the micro.

Cinnamon Rolls and One Savory Pie

The Mouse forgot what kind of savory pie it was, spinach?

After breakfast, we got to tour the coffee grounds. Oh a funny.

Can’t wait to get back when their visitor center is complete. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The haul from “big island”.


Chocolate chip with Japanese rice crackers, salty sweet. Nom!

White Tea Leaves

Grown on-premise. Super rare and expensive. But the people we bought for, worth it.


Bags. Luckily The Mouse’s carry-on expanded a little.

Oh! And the owners of the coffee farm gifted The Mouse!

Burlap Bag

So happy! Dunno what to do with it yet. But … 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

“Since we were in the neighborhood.” Had to make a stop at Manago Restaurant. Super old school.

Almost Twilight





Pickled seaweed, macaroni potato salad, mixed vegetables.

Mahi Mahi

The Mouse’s. Pan-fried, garlic and butter. The best!

The Cat ordered opakapaka, looked so similar the server was confused for a moment.


Hopefully, we can return again.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Last Night of Travel

Suggested restaurant was closed. Early flight out next day. Concierge suggested place might be too pricey. Ate at the hotel bar.

Pork Belly Lettuce Tomato Sandwich

The Mouse’s. Pork belly confit. Well-cooked. Tender, slightly fatty (in a good way). Could’ve used a touch more “umph”. Maybe sriracha mayo? Gojijang mayo? Lau Gan Ma dip? Still good.

Furikake Fish Sandwich

The Cat’s, she liked.

Hilo Bay

Morning view. Too bad we couldn’t stay a little longer. Maybe next time.

Enjoy. Eat well.
