On arrival we had to hand our shoes in and lock them into a shed, no shoes allowed on the catamaran. We were shown how to get on with all the odd shaped surfaces and once on board given a ...

      ... some basic orientation, familiarizing myself with the studio and adobe premiere. Still not on island time I fell asleep at 7:30. Day two consisted of going into town and the King Kai beach. It was a little too crowded but it was beautiful today. When walking in town I got my 100% kona coffee and went to the farmers market.
