Have a great vacation! PS - an all day "semi-homemade tv marathon" ...I will be laughing about that "scary thought" all day!

Glad my vacation stimulated so much chit-chat. Yes, I hiked the NaPali trail, back in the dark ages when I ran the Honolulu Marathon...dr babs, I'd rather watch an all day "semi-homemade" tv marathon than set foot in a helicopter ;)

HAHAHAHAHAHHHAHA!! I felt the same way--and I was pretty scared--but you get to see the island in a completely different way, and it's GORGEOUS! (We had too much rain to hike the NaPali coast unfortunately.)

Have a wonderful trip. My husband used to live on Kaui many years ago and still dreams about it. We were there last year and had a great hike on the NaPali Trail. Rocky!!! And I never thought I'd take one of those helicopter rides either, but I agree with drbabs, it was amazing!! Not sure I'll do it again....but it was so beautiful!

How serendipitous! A gardener friend just gave me an armful of basil cuttings from an overgrown plant and here I was wondering what I was going to do with it all...

Liz, what island are you going to? I'm in Oahu and the farmer's markets are fantastic!

Oh...the water is so warm in Hawaii at this time of the year!! Kauai has the best watermelons that I have ever ever tasted now! We get a few over on Maui and I dream about them the rest of the year.

Have a fabulous trip Lizthechef! I'm from Oahu and Kauai is heavenly. Have you ever kayaked/hiked the Na Pali coast?

And to monkeymom, have you been to the Saturday FM at KCC near Diamond Head? It is very popular (crowded) these days but one of my favorites. Lots of delicious things to eat in addition to local specialties.

Yes gingerroot! That tomato pizza is my favorite. We are going tomorrow to try the Ono pops, I can't wait. Any other places to go to get some local stuff to take home? I was hoping to find Hawaiian vanilla...

Monkeymom, that pizza is my favorite too. Especially for breakfast! I will send you a message if I think of any other places...enjoy the rest of your trip!

thanks gingerroot. The 'send me a message' link doesn't work for me so if you do think of anything, please post here.

Hi, monkeymom, I found a Hawaiian vanilla source for you. Are you familiar with Ward Warehouse? There is a store there, Executive Chef, and they carry Hawaiian vanilla. There is also a local egg store, Ka Lei Marketplace, in Kaimuki that carries Ali`i Kula Lavender products, mac nut oil and other local preserves. Have fun at the FM tomorrow - I have yet to try an OnoPop, but I used to work with one of the owners. It's a small world and even smaller island! Aloha, Jenny
