mamas fish house, hiking and swimming (hawaii, day 8 – 1/22)

twin falls

We’re nearing the end of our trip. Really, we have a full two days left, but it feels like we must return to civilization and cold weather far too quickly.

Easy morning today. C was exceptionally tired this morning (read: fussy and whiney), so we put her down early for a nap and brought the monitor outside to lounge. Ahhh, warm, sunny weather and the beach steps away. Incredible.

We had lunch reservations at Mama’s Fish House this afternoon, so we piled in the car and made our way over to the other side of the island. The food was delicious. Probably the best meal we’ve had on the island so far.

We started the meal with an ahi tuna appetizer. This was the brightest red tuna I’ve ever seen. It tasted as good as it looked. I love this photo of C excitedly pointing at the plate, asking to try some (yes, she’s a sushi kid).

Lunch continued with french onion soup, followed by our entrees – a fish curry for Ben and stuffed mahi mahi for me. Did I mention my dish was stuffed with lobster, crab and Maui onion? Then baked in a macadamia nut crust? Yum.

After lunch, we went for a hike to see “Twin Falls“. It’s privately owned land, but the owners maintain a farm stand at the entrance, and you can show your mahalo by making a purchase on the way in or out. We got a coconut to drink, then started our walk. It was a bit late in the afternoon, and the mosquitoes were starting to gather, but it was worth it. The falls were beautiful. C and I dipped our toes in and played in the water for a bit. It was cold water – the kiddo didn’t seem bothered, but my feet were frozen within a few minutes, so we made it a short adventure.

Dinner at the condo tonight, early bed time for C. Fun day, all in all.
