hawaii: day three
We got a rental car today and decided to explore. Kona is a big island and we stayed close and just wandered a bit. First we went to to the King Shops and walked around a bit. We got a few souvies but decided to head down to Kona where there was supposed to be better shopping. It was about another thirty minutes down the road with nothing to look at except black lava. I realize the colors of this side of the island are chocolate brown, lava black and light yellow-green. And that is all we saw on our ride. At least we got a convertible and got to feel the warm wind in our hair, but I ended up with a bit of a burn.
In Kona we drove through to check things out. We found the Fairfield resort which is where my timeshare is. It's in a great location so I'm psyched if I ever want to come back. We then went to lunch at Huggos. We all had great seafood dishes. Many of the execs from Canon showed up there as well. We then checked out the Kona Brewery which was really just a restaurant. We didn't do the tour. We then headed back, stopped at the Kings Shops again for some icecream and wandered through the back roads. It was great to see some of the hidden beaches and houses.
