Wedding Rehearsal Day

Had a busy day starting off with a hearty breakfast at McDonald’s. Yes, McDonald’s! They have a combination breakfast with spam, Portuguese sausage, eggs, and rice. Yum yum.

Even the pigeons like it, as they search for food inside the restaurant floor.

The bride, Susan, invited me along to their pampering session at Nail Salon KoKo. We had manicures and pedicures with some sparkling wine and snacks.

Cheers to the bride!

Afterwards, we headed over to the Kahala Hotel & Resort for the rehearsal and afternoon tea.

Afternoon tea after the rehearsal

Yummy plates of tea snacks, savory and sweet, included salmon, goat cheese sandwiches, bacon quiche, passion fruit tarts, pound cake, scones, and more.

The amazing dolphins at the resort, yes, you can literally swim with the dolphins

Afterwards, we headed back to our side of the island and went shopping at Target. As you know, I love Target, and this was no exception considering there were Hawaiian things there.

We got some snacks and drinks. Green tea with Muscat Grape.

Wasabi chips (actually made in WA) and Sweet Maui Onion chips (so yummy).

Guava Macadamia Nut Cookies.

We ended up having dinner at Loco Moco Drive Inn. If I’d seen the reviews, we probably would not have eaten there but neither of us got sick but the food was edible but not very good.

I was excited to eat the saimin since I love noodles. It was a bit oily and noodles a bit mushy. It’s weird too, even though we were eating in, everything was served as though it was for take-away.

Ron ordered the special: pork stuffed with breading topped with mushrooms served with mac salad and rice. The pork was quite dry, almost jerky like. I love mac salad.

It was good to get to bed early as tomorrow is the big day!
