Our dinner tonight was made from local food from the Farmers Market in Keahou. Above: salad of local lettuce, tomato, and avocado with lime juice; a bowl of exotic fruit -- rambutans and dragon fruits! Also a sandwich (maybe not so local). Earlier, we enjoyed some sweet Hawaiian bread with locally grown & made lilikoi jam. Lilikoi is the much superior Hawaiian name for passion fruit.
At the market, I used Photobooth to take kalidescopic photos of fruit, vegetables, local food products, and crafts. It was a lot of fun, and included some of the Kona Lisa logos from my favorite Kona coffee.

Tumeric in raw, unprocessed form (which I had never seen)


Painted gourds -- the artist suggested that I get this turtle...

Oh you lucky girl, You're in Hawaii! How cool is that! Your dinner looks lovely.

So was the Dragon Fruit any good? I was getting mixed reviews about it on my post.

Okay so you really have me curious about Photo-booth. I just bought a new MacBook Air
(finally) and it too includes Photobooth. I'm guessing there's a Kaleidoscope "button." I'll have to dig in and find out. (I have it on my home computer too but who has time to explore!)

Have a wonderful time, Mae. Enjoy and bring back lots of goodies and shots!!!
