Love your dinner video! When we visited Molokai we ate at Hiro's several times and so enjoyed the atmosphere and the music!
This really makes me miss Hawaii! You two are LIVING THE LIFE! :hi:
Yes we are Blessed.

Hiro’s just announced that they will be open everyday again starting July 1st. I wanted to swing around the other way too with the video but we were behind the music and there was a large table of people in the table by the bar so I decided against it.

I have a package to pickup at the Post Office today and we want to go to Kumu Farms. Plus, my wife wants to pickup some things and visit our friends at All Things Molokai.
Then steaks the grill tonight.

Made a haul at Kumu Farms. Finally got some flowers too. Other times we didn’t find them until late in our trip.

Another beautiful day, 88 degrees during the heat of the day.

For awhile, I lived in a castle in the Italian Alps. And we would make ourselves stop and be in amazement at sunsets and the view and the clouds, so that we would not take it for granted. That we were unbelievably privileged to be there and to live there. I would go back and live there in a heartbeat; a friend has tried to make it her life's work to get back and live there. ;)

Where in the Italian Alps? We were headed to the Dolomites in May before the virus hit.

My wife is making some mushrooms and onions and she already made the cucumber salad while I was on the lanai. I’ll be headed down to grill some steaks in a minute.

it was 88 today and. Wet warm in the sun but in the shade on the lanai and with the constant trade winds the temps couldn’t be better.

@slip, do you still rent out your condo when you don’t plan to be there? Or are there other condos for rent in the same complex? I would love to spend time on Molokai!

Unfortunately, there are three of us packing. And I find that terms like Pottery means different things to different people. It’ll be fine, because it’ll be interesting to have”nothing” to do. :D

Dave
I'm wondering about the third person. So, sister is moving with you?

I will PM you on that, but yes there are other rentals at WaveCrest. The units above, below and next to us all rent there units. Molokai Shores also has rentals. They are smaller condos and they are right on the ocean also. The best part about Molokai Shores is that it is only 1 mile from Kaunakakai and right in the middle of the island.

After that there is a timeshare, Ke Nani Kai, and some Other rentals on the west side. The west side is much further to town but It is beautiful out there with more beaches.

I’ll be posting some pictures of those later.

Since Dave isn't posting right now (still busy moving I think) I'll answer. No, his sister isn't moving in with them. She was just visiting. I think she is going to go live with her son.

On our way back from Kumu Farms yesterday we took a ride out to the wharf. There were quit a few larger waves out there.

Took a few pictures from the BBQ area yesterday while I was grilling steaks.

We've had some good meals at Ruths' Chris steakhouses in California. I do think it's pricey, but I guess all good steakhouses are. We've never been to an on Hawaii though. I'd rather go to a more independent restaurant. I wonder if the one in Wailea is going to remain open. Or I guess I should say are they going to reopen as they are temporarily closed right now.

I have checked the prices and they are in line with high end places. We have never been to a Ruth’s Chris before. We are going to go to the one in Honolulu at the end of August when we are staying at the Imperial.

When you go get the sweet potato cassarole side dish. It is delicious! We found a copy cat recipe and have made it a few times for Thanksgiving. It's my younger dd's favorite. One thing I liked about Ruths' Chris is that you can get a couple of side dishes to share. And the steaks are very good.

Thanks for the tip. I was going to go when I just arrived in Honolulu while I was looking for our apartment. I went there at 5:30pm and they said the earliest they could get me in was 9:30pm. We’ll definitely make a reservation. :D

Do you use Open Table for restaurant reservations?

Yes, well I mean my wife does. :D
We had enough points to get $100 off our dinner at Gannon's when we were on Maui in March. Good thing we used it since we haven't been going out at all since we got home. :D It's a great way to make reservations, we've even done it minutes ahead of when we've gone to a restaurant. They also have reviews, which dh trusts more than other sites. And it's an easy way to earn points.

My wife has used it but we always lived in a small town and it wasn’t necessary but we have used it on all the islands for a few years now.

I took this one with my phone. I was carrying my steaks so I didn’t want to bring the camcorder . :D
So this is the BBQ’s, Pool and Cabana area.

That doesn't surprise me. When we've been in the area during dinner time there was never more than a few tables occupied. Also, Ruth's Chris is something many mainland visitors can enjoy at home. When I'm in Maui I try to visit the local restaurants that are not available to me back home.
