Happy Camper for Jan. 18, 2015

Mahalo to Kellie Hines for all the help at the Kauai Lagoons Golf Club. It’s always a pleasure to run into Hua Duncan, who helps coach the Waimea High School outrigger canoe paddlers.

Daphne McClure said the pitaya is in season now and people need to check it out. It’s related to the dragon fruit, but she said it’s much sweeter — kind of like eating ice cream.

Daphne was at the Kauai Culinary Market at The Shops at Kukuiula (was nice to see Sandy Poenhelt survived the holiday season in Kalaheo) and said Moloaa Bay Coffee is a member of both the Kauai Grown and Kauai Made programs.

Aletha Thomas of Monkeypod Jam is also on the verge of some excitement in 2015 and Helen Lacono was having a field day with the soup weather. Gail Little mentioned something about the pelicans and Birdie’s, but the soup was too distracting.

Happy New Year to Ada and Ari Koene, who are steady supporters of the Kauai Farm Bureau markets, and Terry Gordines was wiped out early since everybody wanted flowers.
