Lunch and a swim

After visiting the garden, we went to Mediterranean Gourmet in Haena for lunch. What a terrific restaurant this is! I'd had a craving for Greek food ever since Kona, when we found the Greek restaurant in town was closed. While Mediterranean gourmet is more middle eastern than Greek, it is close enough, and the food was outstanding. We shared a Lebanese version of spanokopita, where the phyllo is rolled up in a cylindrical shape around spinach and feta. These were delicious. Todd had the vegetarian plate, with felafel, hummus, cheese, olives and other tasty things. I had a gyro, which might be the best one I've tasted since Mykonos. The tzatziki had almost as much garlic as my mothers.

After lunch, we wanted to go for a quick swim at Ke'e beach, which is the very end of the road in Kauai (as I mentioned in an earlier post, the road around the island only goes about 3/4 of the way around: from 12 o'clock to 9 o'clock, so to speak. Ke'e is at 12 o'clock, and the Napali coastline goes on from here). It's a gorgeous beach, with nice swimming and good snorkelling, though we didn't pack our snorkle gear today. It also tends to be crowded and a little bit difficult to park, although we did manage to find a parking space since it was later in the afternoon, someone had just left.
