Leaving the rental house in Hilo
Today was a mellow day. We woke up around 8:00 am and started cleaning and packing. We had to tie luggage to the top of the the van and it was like tetris putting the luggage and gear in the van. At 12:30 we finally left the house to have lunch. We got some sushi and went to the park to eat it. It was a nice park with a waterfall and some surfers. Afterwards, we started the hour and a half drive to the other side of the island, Kona. Us girls passed out for the whole trip. Once we got to the house we checked it out and unpacked. The house is so nice. After we unpacked we decided to relax and watch some t.v. for the first time all trip. The sun was setting so we decided to watch it and take some pictures. Chris and Yin came over for dinner and gave us a presentation of how they study humpback whales. They also showed us what we are going to be doing at the shore station. After that we had some mango ice cream and relaxed for tomorrow.
