This is a memory that I'm sure Scott and I will pull out of the vault from time to time over our marriage. And the answer to this question will always be,
"Ya. That was not so awesome."
Now, the image of drinking from a coconut . . . doesn't that just seem like the picture of paradise? I have never done it and I like good photo-ops so I told Scott that we needed to stop at one of the coconut stands on the side of the road.
He happily fulfilled my request. But, I was unaware that he had tasted fresh coconut milk in his past and had already discovered that it was not-so-awesome. He kept his comments to himself because he could see how excited I was about this experience.
Such a handsome guy.
And that lady in the truck -- she knows how to use a machete.
I got my cute picture. And we sipped . . .
. . . and ruled that it was not so awesome. Certainly not good enough to drink more than just a taste. And the coconut meat -- slimy and chewy. I think I'll stick with my dried coconut from Costco.

And here's one more of Scott, because today is his birthday!
And it's a pretty awesome day because it is also the day we met, 15 years ago.
I'm so glad that we survived the waterfall so that we could spend this day together.
