Aloha from Hilo Hawaii

Views from our anchorage (moving from ENE to WNW). Coconut Island:

County park, row upon row of outriggers belonging to local clubs, a kite-surfer about to take off:

Downtown Hilo:

Bridge over Wailuku River:
 Overhead, many airplanes flying in, especially between 4-10 pm but who cares? We’re here.

Time for officialdom. The rules say only the skipper goes ashore and straight to customs to check into the country within 24 hours of arrival. But first, a little repair to the stern of the dinghy was needed.

Although Dick was at the Customs office during official hours, the door was locked, and stayed that way. After an hour, he gave up and went in search of a grocery store and fresh food.
