Hi Georgie

I always enjoy reading about "The Best of ____", even more so when I am familiar with the winners! Off to check out the website, as I bet others will as well!

Enjoy your weekend!

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 I enjoyed reading the list and still can't bring myself to ever consider the SPAM musbui. That poor rice and nori. It is begging for some raw fish!

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - I love reading your Maui Blog and your pictures are always wholesome for my soul. I remember hearing about a friend who spent her honeymoon in Maui about a thousand years ago and the glow of her face when she returned, her perpetual smile, and the stories she told about Maui. One day, I'd love to visit. 

I share this with you because your blog posts are an inspiration for the dreamers and people who still carry hope in their hearts.

Wow, Georgie... shocked that Mama's Fish House didn't even make the cut on any of the voluminous food and drink categories!

David & Kirsten Myers I think they made the top of the list in at least one category.. maybe it was Best Fine Dining.
