North Shore Livin' and Ted's Bakery

Ever wonder what it would be like to live on the North Shore? Today, I was there with one of my BFFs, Linds, and she posed this question to me while we were sitting on the sand watching the surf. It was the ultimate NS journey: eating garlic shrimp, frolicking in the golden sand, getting blown around by the wind and waves, and stuffing our faces with Ted's Bakery pies.

If I were to live on this side, I'd probably be 50lbs overweight (I ate a total of 18 shrimp today), not to mention the ridiculously-long drive. Driving into town to do errands would eventually take its toll. I do, however, enjoy driving there on days when I need a break from the busyness of life. There's just something about the North Shore that's extremely calming and tranquil. You leave rejuvenated and with a clear mind.

Did I mention how soft and fluffy the sand is on the North Shore? You will never feel anything quite like it anywhere else. 

First stop: Giovanni's for lunch, of course!!

Then, BBQ Corn (first seen here) at one of the tents in the same area. "Island-Style" is the best!

Shrimp Scampi

Ready to get my hands dirty!

Kahuku "super-sweet" corn for home.

Ted's Bakery before our trek back home!

I still can't get over the layers on this Pineapple Macadamia Nut Cheesecake! Seriously AMAZING stuff. If you don't like chocolate like me, you will enjoy this pie!

Loco Moco and Garlic Shrimp plate. Insider tip: mention that you would like a free pie with your garlic shrimp plate, and you receive a free slice of pie! This is only valid with the garlic shrimp plate.

SO WORTH $12.80 for 6 pieces of shrimp. Butter, cheese, garlic......CAN IT GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS?!
