Kona was the second day on the big island.  Hilo on the east, and now Kona on the west.  This is the only place we went where the cruise ship couldn’t come right to shore.  Life boats took people in groups of 40 to port every few minutes.  The rest of my party went on a tour of the Kona coffee factory while I stayed in town along the shore.  This was going to be a relax and take it easy day for me.  Walked around, took photos, visited the local farmers market, and drank Kona coffee.  Which I can tell you went down smooth.
