Where I stayed
Celebrity Century Cruise Ship
Today we were on the other side of the Big Island in Kona and, like other Hawaiian Islands, the weather was the complete opposite of the rain forest type weather we had experienced in Hilo. It was sunny and warm so we went on a kayak trip to a bay with some excellent snorkelling- the brochure didn’t say anything about a double kayak but with the patience I’m known for, we were able to avoid the divorce-like conversations going on in the other spinning kayaks. We won the race on the way back (although I’m not sure the others knew it was a race).
