Day 70 Hilo, Hawaii

The sail into Hilo was a real highlight for me today....  After the sun rose the angle of the sun hitting the cliffs and island in gerneral gave it some very rich colors....  In Hilo, I decided to keep it fairly simple today for my visit….   I have been here a few other times and have flown over the volcano, walked the crater and toured the waterfalls so…. I went to town.  I got a fair amount of exercise today, I walked into Old Town Hilo, hitting a lot of wonderful scenic sidetrips along the way.  I went back to the ship after walking around for 10+ miles and had a bit of lunch.  Then it was off to Walmart to get some supplies for the long voyage.  I wrapped up the day poolside, visiting with friends…..  This was the final port on the 2012 Grand Asia & Australia Voyage.  We have 5 days at sea as we head to San Diego….  So we come close to closing Chapter 1 of my 221 day voyage……
