Where Have You Been Lately : Warren Olney, radio commentator

April 25, 1999

Kona Coast, Hawaii

When I was a kid, I did play the ukulele and sang, "I want to go back to my little grass shack on Kealakekua Bay," and that's exactly where we ended up, on the Big Island. There are 14,000-foot mountains at the back of Kona and if you drive up to the top of one, you can see the peaks of all the other islands.

Discovery: There's a monument to Captain Cook that you can kayak out to with fabulous snorkeling around the base. We saw eels that hang out in the rocks and open their mouths very wide, and as you swim by, you can see down their throats. We also saw humuhumunukunukuapua'a and very large turtles.
