Holiday in Paradise Part 2

In this blog entry I'll tell you about my second day in Hawai'i.

We woke up very late, about 11 am. I usually have to wake up at four or five in the morning, so I was very happy to sleep in late. We sat on the veranda and drank coffee and listened to the birds singing. I especially enjoyed listening to the sound of the mourning doves cooing. Listening to the mourning doves cooing reminded me of home. There are many mourning doves in Toronto.

For breakfast we went to a popular restaurant called Ken's.

I had a Canadian bacon and cheese omelette with homefries and buckwheat pancakes. They were ono kine grindz. Ono kine grindz means delicious excellent food in Hawai'ian pidgin. After breakfast we went shopping. We went to the Salvation Army Shop. I bought two Aloha shirts for only $20 dollars. I also donated some t-shirts to the Salvation Army. I'm wearing one of the Aloha shirts I bought at the Salvation Army in the photograph below.

After shopping we went for dinner at a Mexican restaurant. I had enchiladas, rice and refried beans. It was ono!

After dinner we went back to Mr Turchi's house. Mr Turchi and I relaxed on the veranda again. We chatted and listened to the coqui sing.
