Coconut Glen – Parked for Good
We stumbled up this parked Chopper in the front yard of a gentleman, Glen, who had decided to hang up his Executive Chef hat at a premier restaurant in Boston to set up shop (sight-unseen) in a remote location on The Road to Hana in Maui. He said that he started by selling Coconuts for “Beer Money” and soon after branched out to make several delicious flavours of all natural Coconut Ice Cream. His establishment is called Coconut Glen’s. In this shot you can see his colourful likeness in the background. We had to sample his offerings which were served in a simple cup with a hand cut Coconut husk spoon. Needless to say this was one of the best things we sampled during our visit. You must pay a visit next time you are on Maui!
Here is his story: http://coconutglens.com/story.html
Highway 360 is a scenic and twisting paved road that skirts the coastline and into a dark tropical forest. There is a narrow section of road just wide enough for one car, with turnouts every 100 feet or so. There were several times when another car wanted the same section of road that we did – decisions had to be made in a hurry. This road is not for the faint hearted, but a Must Drive for those seeking raw beauty and a bit of an adrenaline rush!
