    That photo was from 2016. I should change it. Happy memories that day because we honeymooned in Hawaii almost 34 years ago and we were back again. We climbed Diamond Head the first time in 1986 when there were a couple groups besides ourselves. We were astounded how crowded it was on our next visit. There also was the addition of a steel staircase so we didn't have to climb up the circular stairway in the dark again. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary. We went to Hawaii, your island, and Maui on a honeymoon package. Four years ago we stayed in Honolulu for about a week and a half.

    I'm really surprised that the pineapple and sugar cane fields no longer exist on Kauai! We toured the Dole plantation outside Honolulu. I just thought plantations were everywhere on the islands.

    It's the TRUTH! Hawaiian pineapples are amazingly delicious! I think it's because they are picked that morning and shipped that same morning. We had them every morning for breakfast. We found McDonalds has them for much, much less money that our hotel! 🤪We also fell in love with Loco Moco, and that reminds me that it's been a while since I made it and maybe we'll have it for dinner soon.

    Hi thanks for using your 4 mins for reading my blog. We don't have to wear masks or gloves here. We have decided to just get the groceries delivered to save us and the petrol :).

    Your comment about your DH’s “sensitivity” to pineapples sometimes unpleasant side effect (the enzyme papain in fresh pineapple irritating his mouth).... we’ve found that if you serve your fresh pineapple with a serving of plain yogurt (I usually mix Greek yogurt with Splenda and a dash of vanilla with it), not only does it “Up” the protein of the snack, but it also cuts the enzyme’s ability to irritate my mouth....

    I’ve heard that pineapple fresh from the field in Hawaii is the best in the world.... but then I’ve also heard that most of the Hawaiian pineapple production gets sent off the islands, so local pineapple connoisseurs don’t have it as idyllic as we imagine.... can you confirm?
