Moving into a stunning little hideout near the coast, waiting for the adventure to begin.

New home (for a while) at Keauhou, Kona.
Beds are cozy and, what’s most important, the kids have their own rooms each.
Testing the couch.
First sunset from Keauhou.
In Captain Cook there’s a street market every Sunday.
And they have all sorts of local fruit, from strawberry papaya, mangos, bananas, cocoa fruit…
Exploring nearby Kahalu’u Beach, seems a good snorkel spot.
Further away, the old Kona airport.
Lucky enough we almost stumble upon a rare Hawaiian Monk Seal. They don’t usually beach there but that day she was and dozens of curious onlookers were drawn.
With an estimated population of 1,200, the Hawaiian monk seal is one of the most endangered marine mammals in the world, and the rarest seal in US waters. Main threat these days is not fishery or sharks but toxoplasmosis (an infection picked up through cat feces).
Both happy and sad we move on to get a bit more sun burnt.
Meanwhile, at home.
Afternoon walk to the Keauhou docks, the beach is plain but sandy with a large landing platform protruding into the harbour.
Short walk along the lava wall with some Hawaiian history plaques about King Kamehameha and his family.
Girls at the dock.
The bay from the other side of the horseshoe.
Hangout or waiting for a ship?
Another sunset, one of many to come!
