We were about 3/4 of a mile away from the lava! it was even erupting high into the air!! Way cool. Graeme you would have loved that!
We are now in cooks bay, went for a swim, and then checked out the monument for Captain Cook. great snorkeling here so we will come back tomorrow morning, We lucked out on the way back to the boats. Dolphins everywhere, so we -the kids and I and then Jenny and Jocelyn , jumped in and swam with them!! they were under us and jumping and spinning - so cool, Kyle even had one touch his foot! It was amazing. We are now sitting down to a great dinner and for a lark I thought I'd check for internet, and low and behold - free and fast!! enjoy, we will be snorkeling tomorrow and will get more pictures. Apparently there are turtles and manta rays here as well.
the 2 captains posing for there famous shot - they got us here safely
