So yesterday, we started out our day with a swim at the swim course… I ended up heading out for about 750 yds open water and felt as though I should have headed onto the coffee boat (that’s the plan Friday). This was a beautiful swim, started out cloudy and then it opened up to where you could see the fish and coral reefs below you… absolutely amazing!
It was a little crowded but who cares, I’m in Kona and getting an opportunity to swim with the best of the best in the WORLD!
Early in the afternoon, we headed to Cycle Station to pick up our rental bikes… I have a little Kestrel I’m using out here… and as soon as I signed my life away, we headed out on the Queen K. She can be one nasty stretch of road between the old lava fields retaining heat, the wind out of nowhere that could take your bike right out from under you, and that isn’t even talking about the hills and unpredictable conditions.
