We arrived in the port at 8am. No excursions for us in Hilo but then again everything like the volcano tours were filled long before we got a chance to book one. It may not be a big loss because there is a low cloud deck and the mountains may be completely fogged in with light rain today.
This morning was card games together on the Crows Nest and custom made small pizzas for each of us for lunch near the pool.
Back to the rooms to change for Betty and Shawna to go to the mineral spa hydro pool while I go to the gym to work out a bit. Got to work off some of that pizza before afternoon snack and dinner. How many meals per day are there on a cruise ship. Five? Six? … Eight?
The sun came out! It was after 2pm but yea! … I guess. Some people that went on excursions to see the volcano were turned back because of damage to the road from some mild earthquakes.
Hoping for clear weather for our next port.
Little did we know but the volcano Mauna Loa would erupt the next month to the day. Missed it! Oh well, maybe one day we will see a volcano erupting.
