Maui Adventures Continued...!!

Hi Friends!
I'm sorry Kenny & I haven't been updating this blog as often but we appreciate you guys asking for updates! So I dedicate this post to you!! =) As we start planning our next vacation (in Sept - for our very 1st wedding anniversary!), I was reminded of all the adventures we've had so far and realized I need to catch up with our blogs before our next adventure begins!

While we were in Maui, we tried to consume as much of the local stuff as possible... so here are some of the local foods we bought: Haleakala milk, Uncle Louie's "made-in-maui" Pineapple sausages, Coconut Syrup, and grown in Maui sugar in the raw!
We also tried the Wailua Wheat beer brewed with tropical passion fruit by the Kona Brewing Co! Oh yum! Wish I could have me one of these right now!!

After a hearty breakfast (haha, no the beer wasn't part of breakfast), we were off  ...
Parasailing!!! I thought I'd be freaking out because I'm afraid of heights but it was the most relaxing and fun experience ever! That's us waaaaay up hiiiigh!
And this is the parachute thingy up close!
Boy was it a fun filled morning! Then for lunch, we headed over to this mom & pop place:
Honokowai Okazuya & Deli
3600 Lower Honoapiilani Rd # D
Lahaina, HI 96761

This is where the locals go for lunch so you know it must be good! We ordered the Mahi Mahi with lemon and capers. It was mmmmmmmmmmmm soooooo gooood! The sweet and slighly acidic freshly squeezed lemon juice was the perfect touch to this hearty meal along with the roasted vegetables (gotta have my veggies, even on vacation)!!! I hope your mouth is watering because mine is! Just imagining the smell and savory taste of this makes me want to go back to Maui!
Alright, that's it for now. Stay tuned to find out where to get the best, and i mean THE BEST shaved ice on Maui. PLUS where the next Kenny-and-Mary adventure will be... thanks to All You Can Jet (AYCJ) with Jetblue!!!
