Snapshots from Hawaii 2010, Part IV.

On our last day in Hawaii, I ventured over to the North Shore of Maui with John, Dots, my mother and my mother-in-law to take in some big waves and some good seafood at the celebrated Mama's Fish House

Mama's Fish House is situated right next to the beach. The dining area is an upscale version of the Tiki Room at Disneyland

I had the specialty of the house: mahi mahi stuffed with crab and shrimp. It was fabulous!

That food looks amazing. It is easy to see you all had a fabulous vacation. Our spring break is winding down and sadly we are heading home tomorrow.
