The Wetlands were right outside my hotel room balcony. Kona Seawall was taken from the same location where the three girls were sitting. The Mercedes was restored and had a bright red interior.
The pier in Kona is a center of activity. People hang out there or swim on a small sandy beach. Every evening the outrigger canoe teams practice with the men and women alternating days so that the canoes never sit idle. One man takes a daily swim with his clothes on, makes a mud ball and stuffs it in a drain pipe when he is done.
