DAY 05 - Valerie and I drive to Paia
We stop by Cafe des Amis to grab an early lunch
I order an espresso shot
Someone is eager to have crepes
We drink a lot of water waiting for our crepes to arrive
Both Valerie and I order ham and gruyere cheese crepes
Cafe des Amis menu, wall hung edition
Valerie and I enjoyed our meal here...will come back in the future
We walk up Baldwin Avenue to the edge of town before heading back towards the car...
...but, before leaving, we have to stop at Ono Gelato Company
We first tried their gelato on our September, 2008 trip...and Valerie has been fixated upon it ever since
Seriously, nothing beats their fruit flavors. Straweberry, pineapple, papaya, passion fruit, mango, guava...they are all ono!
Valerie and I park near Ho'okipa Beach and walk down a path to the rocks below
We came here hoping to see surfers, windsurfers, and wakeboarders doing their thing, but there is hardly any wind or surf today
Valerie and her Crackberry. Put that thing away...today is Saturday!
I think the snorkeler is having more fun today
Seems like more work than fun
I've seen bigger waves in Southern California
This is so not worth it
