{Maui Update: Day 2}

Monday, May 31, 2010

Today we ...


Woke up to rainbows falling from the sky.


Had homemade banana milk & granola for breakfast.


Went running at Kapalua Bay.


Saw rocks that looked like Swiss cheese.


Stopped at Hawaiian Village Coffee for bagels & espresso.


Felt free.


Stuffed our bellies with baked salmon and polenta at Lahaina Grill (Thank you Brother!).


And watched one of the most amazing sunsets we've ever seen ... another great day in Maui Waui.

Ps, It's been said that if you need music at the beach you're missing the point. Even though Twinner and I completely agree with this statement, we would highly suggest listening to Sean Hayes - Stella Seed at least once or twice. Even at the beach.

XOXO

I have a dream of going to Hawaii so its fun to read these and be like "Oh that's a good Idea for my trip"

One of the things I remember most vividly about living on Oahu was the abundance of rainbows. They were quite spectacular - especially for a little kid.

Nancy - wishing - I - was - there said...

Another great Hawaiian song to listen to while you are there loving on the fabulous rainbows: 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' by IZ. So wonderful!
BTW, beautiful pictures!

Hi, I'm a new follower of your blog- it's fantastic by the way. Maui looks INCREDIBLE...Hawaii is definitely high up on my list of places to visit!

Tell me more about this homemade banana milk! Sounds super delicious!

favorite part of today was hearing that you felt free. thanks for reminding us that the little things really are monumental when you think about it.
ps, did you and twinner ever listen to bon iver's new project, gayngs? amy went to their "the last prom on earth" show at prince's club, first ave, in minneapolis, and said it was like the best cotton candy you've ever eaten. i just downloaded, "cry, the guady side of town, and no sweat." oh, and mr hayes seedy treat, too. thanks for the rec. thank you, also, for reminding me that sometimes a band's best tune is not the their highest rated one on itunes. love. love. love. hi to twinsey.

ashleyskala, thank you for your sweet comment! grateful to have you reading!

re: homemade banana milk ... soak 1/2 cup of almonds in a bowl of water and refrigerate over night for 8 hrs. then add 1 banana, 1/4 - 1/2 cup of water, and the soaked almonds to a blender. liquify and pour of granola / cereal and serve with fresh fruit. it's the closest thing to milk twinner's ever made!

Han said...

hehe i love that rock - it looks like Emmental!

ashleyskala said...

Thanks so much for the banana milk how-to! I'm not vegan but I love all things banana! I think I'm going to try this out this weekend! YUM!

Today's Letters said...

han, i've never tried emmental before but will add that to my list.

ashleyskala, of course! let me know how it turns out! ps, twinner says you can use coconut water instead of regular tap water to add a bit more flavor.

Han said...

Em: it has air bubbles in it which causes the cheese to have holes in. You know in cartoons where Jerry runs round with the cheese and it has holes in it - thats what emmental looks like :) YUM!
