This was our first day w/out Dani and Scott :(
But we tried to make the best of it regardless!
For starters, we woke up early and drove to the Upcountry area of Maui to visit a farmer's market. We tasted many exotic fruits like cactus pear juice! I purchased a couple of fresh oranges and saw some incredible artwork. We met Wayne from Maui Mountain coffee (some the best tasting coffee on the island). Lauren and I are hoping to visit this coffee farm sometime this weekend.
We then made our way to Komoda's bakery, where we tried some DELICIOUS and FRESH doughnuts! Yum!
We were still hungry for a real meal so we slowly made our way to Moana Cafe for some tasty and authentic local food.
Soon after, we drove up to Hookipa Bay to watch the surfers for a while. It was a perfect day for that!
Early afternoon we walked to the first annual ukulele festival in Paia. The music was great, and we met Bobby, owner of the Maui Mountain Homegrown coffee at a booth she had up. We planned to visit her farm after church tomorrow! :)
We walked around Paia a little bit and shopped at their local equivalent (and much cheaper version) of Whole Foods - a place called Mana - even CHEAPER foods then some places back at home!
All in all, a wonderful and relaxing day!
