McBryde - Allerton Gardens -Kathy 04
n May 2016, we traveled to Hawaii for a cruise aboard NCL's "Pride of America" cruise ship. The ship cruised round trip from Honolulu and visited three other islands.
Our second day on Kauai was a short one with sailaway set for 2pm. We spent the morning on an excursion that took us on a tour of McBryde and Allerton Gardens. After sailaway, the ship cruised along the Na Pail Coast.
We spent the morning on a mini-bus tour of McBryde and Allerton Gardens. Both are National Tropical Botanical Gardens and were pretty interesting. Everything grows very well in Hawaii but clearly maintenance is the key to keeping everything looking good.
Bread Fruit was one of the basic foods for the natives back in the day. We found that a very ripe bread fruit can be eaten without cooking. It felt and tasted like banana to us.
