Day 25 – A Simple Day

It really was a simple day; two beaches, a little dessert making, meals, running errands, an exchange of goods with a neighbor, dinner and a sunset.

After a morning beach walk at Hanalei Bay, we plopped down on the sand to enjoy coffee and croissants.  Chatted with a couple from Colorado for a bit also.

At home we made a full breakfast of papaya boats.

Then we made a mousse parfait with the sapotes and juiced the over-abundance of papayas, mangoes and pineapple we had.

Finishing up that task we decided a little time reading and floating at Tunnels was called for.  Today we spent about an hour and half on the beach.

it was so beautiful in the water today

We went home to lunch on SushiGirl Kauai leftovers. We still had one plate left over from last night. It was perfect to split for lunch.

Running into Princeville and Kilauea was our next stop. We had a few more aloha boxes to fill and ship out.  While in Kilauea we stopped again at Kauai Juice Company.  We each had a free shot of algae. It was a thing to do, but if offered that algae again, I’ll politely decline.  This time I picked my juice based on color.

Once we arrived home, we needed to bring some of my frozen mango cheesecake to our neighbor/friend Mel.  In exchange she offered us fresh ahi and pineapple.  I think we made out better than she did! Thanks Mel!

Dinner was teriyaki ahi (from the other neighbor) over my taro-slaw.  I accompanied my meal with our papaya juice mixed with seltzer.

“Cloud TV” was very entertaining tonight at sunset, especially with live commentary by our friend! All of these things made for a simple day, but yet a perfect day!
