So begins our second full day on the Kona coast of the big island, Hawaii. We arrived Friday after a three hour drive from the other side. The ride over the centre of the island was spectacular.

Yesterday, we spent some time snorkling at two of the famous spots on this coast. First we visited Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park, the site of Captain Cook’s death. Ben and Josée snorkled there while Cynthia and I enjoyed the surroundings. We then moved on to Two-Step Bay where the snorkling was terrific and we all participated.

Finally, after a long day in the salt air and the sunshine we headed home for our evening meal. I’ve included some pics of our place north of Kona.

Goodbye for now and God bless.

  1. I don’t know how many days you have over there but South Point is worth the trip. And then of course Black Sand Beach – Punalu’u – where the honu come out to rest. 4 more sleeps before I go to Kona. This will be my 5th trip there. We stay down at Keauhou in a condo because we paddle out of the Keauhou Canoe Club. The bay at Two-Step was where we finished the Queen Liliuokalani race in August.

  2. Two step is great for snorkelling as well as a really good shore Scuba dive. Last time we were there, hundreds of Spinner Dolphins were resting there. The juveniles were jumping and splashing while the adults were “sleeping”. Enjoy the time in the sun!
