Lahaina Jodo Mission behind Baby Beach....
Aloha! Another day off and the sun was shining! After an hour of Vinyasa Yoga and a morning smoothie I headed down to "Baby Beach" to finish my book ( Happy Isles of Ocean by Paul Theroux ).
If you haven't already noticed I have been reading this book on and off forever ( I do this with books......). I'll get into more detail later but I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, "Happy Isles" was not well received( according to several reviews I read .... ) However, it would be interesting to know how many of these critics have even been to the destinations described in this entertaining piece of non-fiction? If so, I'd gamble to guess their opinions might be different.
Anyway, more on this later.....

1/4 Cup Hemp Protein Powder
2 Tb Hemp Seeds
1 Frozen Banana

Then off to the beach.....
I always forget about the serene Jodo Mission behind the beach in Lahaina. It's actually pretty hidden from the main street.
Isn't it beautiful........
I was still full from my high protein shake this morning so for lunch I kept it simple...
