Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?

Coconuts aren't exactly native to the midwest, so you'll have to excuse me when I say I've never actually seen a fresh one. In fact, the only ones I've ever encountered have been the dried brown hairy shelled ones that you can sometimes buy in the grocery store. As for coconut water - that just naturally comes in a container right? Like gatorade.......right?! Needless to say, when I saw a stand at the Maui Swap Meet where a guy was selling fresh coconuts I had to embrace my inner tourist and try one. I'm not really a fan of the packaged coconut water, but drinking straight from a fresh coconut is delicious!



We even went back to the guy and asked him to split it in half once we were done so we could eat the coconut meat. Again, I've only ever had dried shredded coconut, and I'm not really a fan. Love the smell - hate the texture. But fresh coconut right out of the shell? YUM.


I told Kace not to let me buy empty coconut shells, otherwise he'll be doomed to hear me running around the house clacking the shells together Monty Python style.

  1. Oh please do clack the shells!! But do be sure to get your own as the swallows are non-migratory...
