    Great day today. My wife did a two mile rough water ocean swim, so I took the monkeys to eat. You guys knew food would be involved somehow, right?

    We had our 4H meeting today, so we spent the afternoon on a guided botanical tour. Here are some of (read a lot) of the tree and plant pictures. Pardon my focus, was using the phone camera.

    They thought the loulu palm was extinct, but happily not so. The tiny fruit taste like coconut.

    After our tour, my wife complained about being thirsty and hungry, so I gave her my water (woulda given it to her sooner if she said something) and was gonna take her for dim sum, but they were closed. So the plan was to go home and have some popcorn to tie over while I smoked some salmon.

    So I get the kiawe smoldering while the wild salmon is salt curing. Then I rub it with a little seasoning and a bunch of honey.

    Smoke away while relax, hydrate with coconut water, watch a whole bunch of Psych episodes (monkey's idea), and then a simple dinner is served.

    Nice of you to say. Truth be told, I just went crazy and snapped away. Just picked some of the better looking or more interesting (to me anyway) to post.

    Bonus flowers from my daughter's tennis practice. Didn't like the thick clouds of gnats though.
