San Diego, California. 

Today we had a full day of public tours with the local community of San Diego. We were grateful as a crew to allow the people from the area to get a little history about Hokuleʻa and to get a glimpse of what life is like aboard the wa’a. Lunch was graciously provided by the local L&L restaurant with food and drinks that reminded us of home. We continued on with tours that took us up into the afternoon.

In the evening, we participated in a crew panel at Silvergate Elementary where we were hosted by Na Koa Kai, a local canoe club that focuses on giving kids access to canoe paddling and other water activities and providing a cultural foundation. We were blessed with some hula performances and a wide variety of questions from both the keiki and adults about Hokuleʻa.
