Saw this beautiful motorcycle with a matching sidecar sitting in the parking lot of a cafe we decided to stop at on our way home. The type on the motorcyle itself reads Road King and Liberty on the sidecar. I don’t know much about motorcycles, but it was in fantastic condition and the light was hitting the chrome really making it shine!

The rider was an older gentelman sitting in the cafe eating a bowl of Alfredo (he had a helmet so I put two and two together) and he looked to be a local and was probably a regular at the restaurant.

The restaurant/cafe itself was quaint, divided into two large sections and was just about empty at the time we walked in, but filled up to almost capacity by the time we left! It had a home-y feel to it with wooden chairs, fans and checkered table cloths with a fresh rose on each table. With a name like Pesto, it had a full Italian styled menu with some seafood inspired creations. The crab cakes were fantastic which we enjoyed alongside a thin crust margherita pizza and a large serving of linguine in a rose sauce with shrimp. I was stuffed by the end of the meal and took a walk down to the beach front to watch the Canoe Club finish their practice at sunset. Sadly, the restaurant sits in a plaza across from the ocean, but the view’s obstructed by a large factory πŸ™

If you find yourself on the Big Island, I highly recommend giving Pesto a visit!
