Monday morning we get breakfast at the Sunrise Restaurant as is our tradition now. One, because we get such awesome service and two, because the “breakfast” that the HoJo offers is not fit for human consumption. Seriously. I’d rather get my breakfast out of a random tupperware container at the bottom of the communal fridge in a halfway house.
Sunrise Restaurant breakfasts are always good. Ordering off the menu is, however, preferable to the buffet.
Afterwards we headed down to the beach and played and played and played. Emily kept her old man quite busy. The waves were quite rough, though, and Emily and I weren’t as into wave hopping as we normally are. We explored some and ended up coming to the conclusion that the tidal pools down the beach a short walk were preferable for the kids to play in. We decided that Tuesday’s campsite would be nearer to those.
About 11ish we went back to the room and got cleaned up. Kinda. And took naps.
I just want to say at this point that being in a hotel room with Jonathan is like checking in with Quiet Riot. You know something is gonna get trashed at some point. It turns out that the second you take off his diaper in a hotel room an excretory function is going to get triggered. All in all Jonathan did a number 5 on the hotel carpet. If he had thrown the fridge into the pool it would have completed the rock band motif.
We decided to go to lunch kinda late and couldn’t really decide on what we wanted, so we just cruised the island a bit to see what struck our fancy. What struck our fancy was Boonmas Thai & Hawaiian Cuisine. I think technically it is called the Norased Grill, but it recently changed ownership and will be changing names shortly, too.
The food was great, with Marilyn having a vegetarian Hawaiian Fried Rice dish and me having a Pineapple Curry dish. Both were excellent. They gave Emily some plain white rice and chopsticks just like she likes and Jonathan had the chicken fingers and fries, which is a staple of his diet. The missus and I (mostly me) also partook of a bottle of Way Kuhl Riesling from Mosel-Saar-Ruwer in Germany. Actually, it was the name that caught my eye, but the wine was quite tasty.
We will definitely be partaking of food from that establishment again.
After that, it was back to the hotel room for awhile and then I headed onto one of them there casino cruises whilst Marilyn and the kids chilled and saw a friend from home who happened to be vacationing, too.
The casino cruise deserves it’s own post, so I will leave it at that.
