Saturday Snapshot (12/22/12) Maui Surfing Goat Dairy

Thanks to all who congratulated me on my new Granddaughter who was featured last Saturday. :-) She is quite sweet.

We boarded the Pride of America, Norwegian Cruise Ship late on 12/8 and we returned early 12/15.  The ship spent two days on three islands, other than Honolulu: December 9-10 we visited Maui, 11-12 Hawaii, the Big Island, and 13 -14 Kauai.  I plan to devote the next six or seven weeks of Snapshots to show the highlights of the cruise. I hope you enjoy!

The ship was beautifully decorated for the holidays and the food was Wonderful!
 The beautiful tree at the grand staircase.
This is the Pink Champagne room where they had a nice piano player each night 
and held the Art Autcions three days.

The first day on Maui we had planned out with the help of our son and D-I-L.  We rented a car and visited three sites with one more added stop on the way. The first site of interest was the Surfing Goat Dairy. Here we saw baby goats, learned a little about goat cheese, tasted samples and bought a variety pack of cheeses to ship back to the kids.
 These are some surfboards outside the shop; inside the window they are processing cheeses.

 These are very new, two day old, baby goats.

 These are four day old goats whose horns have just been cut off. 

You can walk into the fields for a tour and pet the adult goats.

We are enjoying the cheeses during our visit. :-)

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.


  1. Are they La Mancha goats? I am guessing by the shape of the ears. We have La Mancha crosses and each year try our hand at making cheese.

  2. The ship was beautifully decorated and those baby goats are adorable! Sounds like a lovely trip.
