plantation

One of the places we visited was the Dole Pineapple plantation. There were a few things to do there (eat pineapple ice cream, dried pineapple, and pineapple gummi bears), including a train ride and a self guided tour through the "gardens". They had just harvested pineapple, so the train ride didn't feature any actual fruit in the ground. We opted for the photos the gardens would provide. Coffee beans.

Coffee Beans in need of roasting

I've neve seen this on the tree in person before. Heck, I've hardly seen unground beans from a package as most of the stuff we buy is is already in small pieces. I could get used to the lush vegetation all around, all the time.
