Today I'm in digital overload. Lots of photos and video to review. Lots more to come this week.
I want to thank a few people for helping me out. Beth-Ann, you were there from the moment I got up (even before that) and you were part of the adventure all day long and before and after with all the PR and even as assistant photographer and support vehicle driver. Thank you.
Bill, I felt better in the water just knowing you were there. Sorry you had the impossible job of trying to find me in all those whitecaps but somehow I think you understand.
David, what a gift those photos are. David Cornwell Photography
Lots of photos and stories to come this week.
My support team lost sight of me as I rounded Makapu'u and didn't see me again till after I got back to Magic island. That caused a lot of worry and drama. Next time I need to come up with a better plan so those on shore don't worry. I did however arrive at Magic Island exactly when I said I would and those who were waiting there for me were not surprised.
Here are a few photos I randomly pulled out of the hundreds.

Ok, I'm impressed. Can you explain more about what you eat during a day like that?

I know you've been reading this blog for a while so you shouldn't be surprised - food.
Ate a normal breakfast for me. Scrambled eggs and a salad.
A few bananas too.
I didn't eat again until Kailua Beach where I had a chicken sandwich on organic whole wheat bread. And water.
On the paddle I ate a few bananas, some almonds and some very plain whole wheat crackers. And some more water. No "energy" bars or sugary sports drinks. It all stayed down and I had plenty of energy.
