I'm just posting this photo of Kehena Beach yesterday to show what I meant by it being like a lake. Usually there are huge waves and surging undertoe which makes it only for the adverturous, but lately it's been extremely calm. Yesterday, AJ and I swam to the second island which for people who swim here know is a pretty good distance.
I'm off to a tour of art studios in the Volcano area of the Big Island. In Volcano Village there many artists living there. Kalani leader Richard (see kalani.com) invited me to do a bike tour which would be fun but I'm going with Chie so I think we're just going to do the lazy car tour, or maybe walking tour if they are near each other.
