everyday vita: hawaii part 1


We landed in Hawaii yesterday, and since our arrival I have been soaking up a lot of much needed vitamin D and enjoying some much needed relaxation.
I have barely been here for 24 hours and have already seen four rainbows. 


We woke up early this morning and had a delicious breakfast at the Wailana Coffee House.  I enjoyed some delicious Hawaiian style muesli (with half-and-half, crushed macadamia nuts and banana slices) -- along with a huge papaya half.  I have fallen in love with papaya -- it is irresistible with a little squeeze of lemon.  My dad had the Belgian waffle and my mom had the Portuguese french toast (which was stuffed with strawberry jelly -- yum!).


As a coffee addict -- let me tell you that the coffee here is insanely good. Super dark, rich, smooth and mellow.  I enjoyed three cups this morning -- and have been on a caffeine high all day! Wheee!


 I also went for a four and a half mile run down Waikiki (so much energy thanks to that delicious, Hawaiian coffee!).  It was drizzling a little bit (but still sunny). It was probably one of the most invigorating and refreshing runs of my life!


Aloha,
Erica
