Lunch at an unexpected gem in Port Alberni called Pescadores Bistro – their version of a bloody mary named something we can't remember, a classic Eggs Benny, and Oysters very lightly cooked with hollandaise over a bed of fresh spinach. NICE combinations.

   This is the kind of restaurant with a graceful middle-aged waitress who calls you "Hon", where there are signs like

Husband, fishing
pole, and dog.
REWARD for dog

So where's lunch? We asked our pilot where we'd find a hearty fresh seafood lunch, and he said "My house! But I didn't thaw the fish..." And then sent us to Sobo, somewhat off the beaten tourist track and an obvious  favorite of locals.

Rochelle had the special Tuna Melt, while I gorged on Polenta Fries with what they call Caesar sauce, Smoked Fish Chowder, and Steamed Clams and Mussels, washed down with No Boats on Sunday Cider.


Omigod, I was full!

Not much to do in Hawaii Volcano National Park, and so we soon carried on to Hilo, where I expected us to find a good lunch. I was right: Cafe Pesto. Even at 3pm the place was crowded, and we were told we wouldn't get seated (party of 7!) for an hour we walked up the street and found a very cool shop, The Locavore Store, where we found several Island delights.
