Meet Larry...

...the coconut guy.While at the black sand sea turtle beach, we encountered a local, who for a nominal tip would crack open a fresh coconut so we could drink the water (we learned that old coconuts have the milk) and then sample some of the coconut meat. He was very quick and skillful as he opened the coconut shell with his steel knife, quickly carving out the coconut meat. A multi-talented vendor, he was also weaving palm frond baskets and hats as well.
This photo of Cedar and Larry the coconut guy just totally cracks me up. Hang Loose.

So, there was not as much milk in the fresh coconuts?? Interesting! I have enjoyed seeing your pictures...having thoughts about moving to Hawaii until today, when I saw Larry's hair...it reminded me how wild my hair would be with the humidity...so guess I will stay in Iowa! ha... Thanks for sharing...it's been fun...especially on these cold wintery days!
