Portuguese Sausage, Eggs, and Rice...The Breakfast of Champions!

I couldn't sleep...WTF!!!  Since LA time is 3 hours ahead of island time, I ended up waking up about 5:30 am...YIKES!  I decided to just chill on the couch and just rest...listening to the cool ocean breezes rustling the palm tree leaves outside and to the birds chirping melodic sounds and to the interruptive roosters sounding the natural alarm clock. 

At about 7:30 I was ready to go on today's adventure...island trekking...well...the wannabe outdoorsy version of it.  My cousin woke up about the same time and we were out the door just before 8 am.  For breakfast, my cousin had a protein shake...I opted for super fast local grindz at Jack In the Box of all places!?!?!  I got the Portuguese sausage and eggs which comes with rice all for just...$3.24!!!  While I ate in the car my cousin sped her way through traffic west on H-1,  north on H-2 past Mililani (the final resting place for my paternal grandparents and aunt), then briefly north on the 80, past the Dole Plantation in Wahiawa on the 99 or Kamehameha Hwy, and then on the 83 (still Kamehameha Hwy.

Road to Haleiwa
..weird) through Haleiwa proper.

A trip to Oahu, for me, is never complete unless I eat at my favorite places...Matsumoto Shave Ice in Haleiwa is one of them!  It was about 9:30 am and YES I was gonna have shave ice with ice cream!  Funny thing was that we weren't the only ones there...two EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians) were enjoying shave ice for their morning break and 2 Japanese tourists as well.  Its a good thing we got there so early...later on in the day the line for Matsumoto Shave Ice is OUT THE DOOR and spilling into the parking lot and down the street!!!

Matsumoto Shave Ice is yummy.

Matsumoto Shave Ice...see the I'm not the only one with a sweet tooth early in the morning!
..a ball of vanilla ice cream at the bottom of a paper cone topped with a heaping mound of shaved ice so fine its like fresh packed powder for all you ski and snowboard enthusiasts out there.  I chose lychee and honeydew melon flavor...yum-o!  I think I was too anxious to eat it that when I dug my spoon in, a shave ice avalanche occurred and part of my lovely sweet treat went careening down the side of the paper cone to its unfortunate demise...melted on the hot ground.  Even so early in the morning, the shave ice hit the spot as the sun was starting to scorch and I needed relief! 

On the road again...
