... I was reading about some of the areas that we haven't seen yet as we have a few more days. The plan at the moment is to drive to the Hilo side tomorrow but go down south from there to see some of the sights. They sound great in the book anyway. Perhaps a Malasada might be in order on the way home! Got some good pictures Snorkeling this afternoon. Ran right into a turtle as well.

We considered snorkeling, but there is a fresh water spring and the fresh water rises to the top so its very cold to swim here. There were a few people snorkeling.
