Any excuse I can find to jet to a Neighbor Island, I’ll take it.
I love that we can jump on a plane and, in about half an hour, be somewhere a little different for the day.
On Wednesday my mom and I flew to the Big Island to spend a day in Kailua-Kona, my mom’s hometown. And we had a full schedule of hiking, shopping and, of course, eating.
My only goal for the trip was to hit Manago Hotel in Captain Cook for dinner — and pork chops. Believe it or not, my mom, who hails from Honaunau, has never eaten there.
That’s just not right!
So here’s what our 12 hours in Kona looked like:
The Pork Chops at the Manago Hotel is winnahs! We went to about a dozen coffee farms in Kona earlier in the year and Greenwell had the best tasting coffee according to my wife, I don’t drink coffee.
Catherine it was so fun taking you and your mom up Hualalai! What a foodie you are. Sounds like you had a great day in Kona–so happy. I’ll check out Oven & Butter, had no idea it was there. Come back again!
Kona is a cool town, think it is a good place to retire.
Thanks for sharing Cat.
CAT: Aaaiiiyyyaaahhh! Fuud Pix! Tenks! Haven’t been back to Kona in centuries. Thanks for the pix trip.
Great trip report of my old home. Glad you stopped at Greenwell’s Coffee – old family friends.
