Day 5

today we set out for food adventure and snorkeling. Pineapple plantation is the signature stop in Oahu travel. The dale plant create all sort of interesting food from pineapple. Candies, cookies, nuts and pineapple ice cream. My kids eyed in the gigantic pineapple ice cream on the real pineapple with cherry, chocolate and orange dressing.

 

The second stop is the Giovanni’s shrimp truck. we ordered 4 different flavored shrimp plates. The best is shrimp scampi. The shrimps was steamed before marinate in the sauce. The rich flavor in the fresh water shrimp is a delicious combinations. The line is long and the parking is scarce. I almost lost my cool. However, the patience was paid off.

Next stop is the famous shaved ice. The same thing happened here. No parking and long line. Same result, the very yammie shaved ice.

 

The next unexpected stop stop is the pol factory. We tasted the authentic Hawaiian dish, the pork lau lau and Kailua pig. The pork lau lau is steamed pork wrapped in lotus leaf. The flavor of spices mixed with lotus leave create the special, leave flavored pork dish. My kids had lunch 2 hours ago and they were hungry again.

The food adventure is almost end. We are going to visit Hanauma bay for snorkeling. The water activities is the high light of the day. They saw  70 % of the creatures in the introduction film. They burned all the calories from our food adventure. I walked along the beach, taking photos, watch the washed ashore reefs and my dear adult children playing in the water. I wish my husband can be here to watch our kids play. The time has become less and less.
