Kona

I told you about the wonderful Bed and Breakfast that we stayed at in Volcano. Let me tell you about the place we are staying at in Kona. Kona is a wonderful little resort town. The hotel we stayed at is a dump!!! Thank goodness we are only here 2 nights! If you come to Kona, and I will come back some day — do not stay at the King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel!

Regardless, we had another wonderful day in paradise. Today we went out snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay. WOW! We had a great time. This bay is famous as the place that the Hawaiians killed Captain Cook (partially because he didn’t know how to swim — but that’s another story). The fish and the coral were awesome. On the way back to the dock we saw some spinner dolphins doing there dancing for us. Great day!

Tonight we are gonna head toward a beach side restaurant to watch the sun go down. Then off to the Sheridan Hotel to see the Manta Rays who come into their bay to feed.

Tomorrow we head to Maui.

Aloha -
Your snorkel pictures are great - especially when they are enlarged!Your father's Sunday sermon on faith and courage was very inspiring - he remembered me from sending him the book-signing pictures. I enjoy your blogs and look forward to reading them every day - and the fact that you take the time to write every day is really commendable! Your pictures are great and the love of photography is seen in them.

Aloha!
