We arrived at Kealakekua Bay before Alan and Jean, but the dolphins were not here this morning. So we headed down to Honaunau Bay to see if the dolphins (or Alan and Jean) were there ... but, again, to luck. We did wait for A&J to show up, then we all piled in to our car and drove down to Ho'okena Park to swim. We first walked around the shoreline north of the Park, past some very rustic homes and the ruins of a church.

Returning to the beach, we had a lovely snorkel ... the best fish were right where we got in the water, but it was a nice swim anyway. Strong current; glad I had worn fins.

It was now mid-morning ... Paul and I returned briefly to the condo to grab what food and drinks we had, then we returned to Alan and Jean's for a relaxing afternoon. Nap time!

For sunset, we walked around the Place of Refuge (Honaunau). It's a very lovely location, but we were not able to learn many details, as the interpretive center was shut down for the evening. Fortunately, Jean and Alan had been many, many times before and were able to give us a bit of a tour. Impressive walls; and funny fish that build little caldera for themselves and keep guard.
