Green Turtles in the Bay

Today's plan was a trip over to the Fairmont Resort, where the Green Sea Turtles nest and swim along the shore.  We were hoping to have a chance to swim with the turtles, as well as hang out at the beautiful resort in Mauna Loa, the same area where our condo is located.  A short drive across the black lava flow, past the Foodland grocery and on to be greeted by a huge Canadian flag, and the Canadian Construction Association annual meeting.  Sponsors included PCL and Richie Bros, but Rick didnt see anyone we knew.

The beach chairs were lined up on the white sand, and we did find a friendly turtle to swim with.  Unfortunately it was too far out in the bay for Katie, but we managed to build a great sand sea turtle on the shore that she seemed just as happy with.  And after an hour or two in the sun, we had all had enough beach for the day.... funny, but after Thailand and Australia, and then Fiji, we have had our fill of beach, and none of us wants to either tan or certainly not sunburn anymore.  So back to the condo for a homecooked meal and some time in the shade.  The countdown is on.... 13 days til the trip winds up, and I think we are all looking forward to coming home.
