Not a good day to go snorkeling.
Heavy surf the day before left a legacy, murky water. Visibility was rather poor today. Whenever the surf is high the visibility is low. The surfers may be happy, the divers and snorkelers less so. At least these conditions are not all that common, if a somewhat more so in the winter months. Wait a few days and the silt will settle, leaving the more usual clear Kona side water.
At least we had a good swim.
