We stopped for a day in Hilo, Hawaii, a small town on the Big Island. It was raining all day, but we got off the boat and had a walk around the town anyway.
Hilo typically receives 278 rain days per year, and it is the wettest city in USA, receiving 130 inches of rain per year – so I guess the weather wasn’t very surprising. On the other side of the island is the town of Kona, which we will visit in two days. Kona gets very little rain and more than 300 sunny days per year, so we hope for better weather there.
