I took my first flying lesson in Kona, with Alex and Grace in the back seat (see below).
Jon Dabel from Tropicbird Flight Service was a great instructor.


We snorkeled with sea turtles in this bay the day before. It was amazing.


On the left side is the Cook Monument, where James Cook was killed.


Downtown Kona, with our hotel on the left side


The plane we flew


We visited a resort called Waikoloa, which is the most beautiful (and
expensive) resort we had ever seen. All the rest of the photos are from there.


 


It was very difficult to photograph geckos.


Puffer fish


Close to sunset, looking at Maui


The sunset was like from a SciFi movie.
