Shared a picnic table with a friendly, but slightly twitchy praying mantis – eventually he walked onto a stick (a real stick) and moved off to a safer area.
We met with the good folks from Blue Horse Kona down in Kealakekua Bay – home of great swimming and snorkel activities – this was also an area that was hard hit by the tsunami of March 2011 – whole houses were ripped off of their foundations and dragged out into the bay.
The view here is spectacular – Kealakekua Bay is home to the Captain Cook memorial and the works largest cliff side mausoleum – (more on that on a later blog of our trip…)
