|First thing this morning, we went to the Kona Farmers' Market.|
We bought tomatoes and basil from Malamala Farms, shown above.
|Rambutan, a type of lichee... we tasted it at the market and bought some for lunch, as well as several other fruits.|
|We also bought Kona coffee: light and dark roast, from a farm|
that's located uphill from where we have been.
|100% Kona coffee is quite wonderful. Unfortunately blends are often labeled quite deceptively... you have to read carefully!|
|By around 9:30 we were heading for Two Step the great snorkel place near the Honaunau National Park.|
Left to right in the water: Alice, Evelyn, Miriam, and Len.
|You can see the national park from the snorkel beach.|
|Two Step beach viewed from the National Park (a couple of days ago).|
After snorkeling at the beach, we came back to eat our farmers' market purchases.
|Tomato and basil salad, an incredibly ripe mango, other fruit, and bread from the artisan bakery.|
