Nice and early this morning most of the crew headed out to the beach for an open water swim. I swam for about 30 min - a total of 3 laps out to a buoy and back. It was so amazing the beach is filled with coral, colorful fish, a young sea turtle, a few puffer fish - It was a wonderful way to start the day. I still feel a little tired, my left knee/leg still hurts and I'm still somewhat sore but nothing to bad.
Afterwards we all got in the mini van and headed north around the island towards Hilo. We stopped a few time to enjoy the views then went and checked out the Volcano. All in all it was a long day in the car but it was cool to see the rest of the island.
