Kona, Kamehameha, and Some Turtles

Day 5 (Tuesday): We explore Kona. Kona is a typical beach town with t-shirt shops and seafood restaurants with the exception of a temple built by King Kamehameha I and a royal residence now made into a museum. Touring and shopping ensued. We met the wife of one of the captains of a double-hulled traditional Hawaiian style sailboat-slash-oarboat who, along with his crew of maybe eight, set off to circumnavigate all of the islands as we watched from the beach. Good luck.

We came home to do some of that resting I promised myself I would do. After an hour of that, we headed down for happy hour and more drinky-snorkeling.

A little Olympics and off to bed.
