Oahu’s North Shore

The next day was rainy and because of the time difference we were up at 5 AM. We decided to head to the North Shore. That is where the professionals and experienced surfers go. The rain sure didn’t stop them. The towns on the North Shore are much less touristy. Just what we were looking for. At 10:30 AM we stopped at Romy’s http://www.romyskahukuprawns.org for the absolute best garlic shrimp plate! I am sure the used at least three heads of garlic. It had roasted garlic and sautéed garlic over sticky white rice. Signs outside the little hut say each takes 30 minutes and it does. The shrimp ponds line the road. The freshest shrimp with all that garlic, how could it be anything but fabulous. Next we stopped by a roadside stand for some fried bananas, which Marc said reminded him of bananas foster. All I can say is they were crispy and sweet!

Then we stopped at Ted’s Bakery http://www.tedsbakery.com/pies.html for Chocolate Haupia Cream Pie. It has a layer of rich, smooth dark chocolate custard cream, filled with another layer of haupia (creamy coconut pudding); topped with whipped topping. Marcus and Cali had Glaziers -glazed donuts without a hole.

We stopped again to take in some surfing. While we were watching the surfers we were able to catch several glimpses of spouting whales not far from shore. How cool!!

On the way back we stopped at the Dole Plantation. http://www.dole-plantation.com We learned about how pineapples were planted from the crown by hand. It takes 18 months before they produce their first fruit. The plant produces another fruit in around 15 months. All of the harvesting is done by hand. It sure is yummy!!

    Pineapples are usually $2.99 in our stores. I’m surprised they can sell them for that price when you see how long it takes to grow them. They were a special at Weis last week-$1.47. It was yummy & we thought of you seeing them grow while we ate it.
