We left Victoria bright and early on the 14th, getting to the airport at 5:00 and barely making it on to our 6:00 flight. There was an incredible lineup to get through security. The rest of the trip to Kona went well, we arrived at our hotel in Kona around 5:00.
Here’s Kathy in the hotel lobby as we were checking in. It was about 85 degrees. We went to Don the Beachcomber’s bar in the hotel for a couple of drinks and watched the sunset.
After a short walk we went to bed early and fell asleep immediately.
Tuesday morning we walked down the street to a place for breakfast. It was on the main drag, Ali’i Drive, and we were able to watch the day get going in this very touristy part of town.
This looks out to the West and we could see the full moon in the morning sky.
We checked out after doing some walking and visited a few places in town before going to lunch then Safeway for some groceries for the first couple of days at the golf villa.
We arrived at the golf villa at around 3:30. It is about a 40 minute drive north of Kona.
