Kauai Part 2: The Revenge

So, as seen in the previous post, we went to Kauai for our 1 year wedding anniversary. It was amazing. Here is some more proof.


Somewhat near the condo we were staying at was a little marketplace. At the market place, they had two amazing treats. Hot dogs and gelato. But they were not mixed. That would be gross.


First the Hot Dog Stand


021


I don't know what Puka means, but it must mean heaven in tube form.


If you were eating one, this is what it would look like


023


So basically, they are incredibly phallic even for hot dogs. You can order them original, spicy or hot. And then had any number of tropical relishes and mustards. We tried a few different combos and they all taste the same, but its all good.


024


Good and enormous.


Next to heaven in a bun was a gelato stand. We went to Italy for our honeymoon and ate gelato at least twice a day for about 2 weeks, so we needed some island inspired gelato. So here is Amanda outside of Papalani Gelato.


025


She is snacking on POG gelato, which is Passion, Orange, Guava. Amazingly tasty and refreshing, as you can tell by looking at Amanda. PS, compliment her on that shirt because it is ridiculously cute.


I am eating the Kauai pie, which was a combination of coconut, mac nuts, and chocolate. Good. Amanda's was better. Don't compliment me on my shirt. Or the random wet spots.


026


So now we are properly nourished, we hit up a farmer's market!


Lots of good, fresh fruit. However, most of the fruit is...well I'm not sure how to say it. I suppose it is somewhat foreign to us. We have mangos at home, but not this vareity. They had papaya, which we never have. Apple Bananas, which are small, sweet bananas. We bought a few things, but sadly we didn't really love any of it. Might as well try, right? Well we also tried coconut water. For $2, a rather surly woman will take out a machette, whack a coconut twice to expose it's goodies, give you a straw and tell you to have a nice day. Coconut water, ice cold and fresh. Delicious!


029


Any time machettes are involved, I am fully invested.


And now for some wildlife. Kauai is fully of feral chickens. They are literally everywhere and they are really stupid. They just hang in the street, they do the little "cock a doodle doo" all the time, constantly, and from what I gather they procreate a lot because their are chicks everywhere...or as Amanda says "CHICKEN BABIES!!!!"


038


Chicken babies, to me, sounds like a small chicken sandwich that McDonalds sells, but I don't want to put it in my mouth.


Far more cooler than Chicken Babies, are Monk Seals. They are endangered and beach themselves often. When they do someone(not entirely sure who, or where they come from) ropes off about 100 feet around the seal so tourists don't harass the seals. Occasionally the seals will maul you, which I wanted to see, but didn't. In any event, way cool. There are only around 1000 of them left...I think.

And to end, some beautiful beach scenes.

Remember, you can't have rainbows without a little rain.

I am loving your trip recap. Puka Dog is on our list when we make it to Hawaii. It seems I must go everywhere Anthony Bourdain does. :)

How entertaining it would have been for you if the seal had lived up to the potential threat. You always fit something in that gives me a good laugh. The pictures are simply beautiful!
