In his attempts to help get our larger luggage off the ferry boat when we arrived today, Austin accidentally left his back-pack on board the BOLO.
His backpack contained several expensive items, including his iPad, diving regulator and his dive computer.
In the flurry and excitement of our arrival and first trip into town for a few groceries, the backpack was not missed until early evening.
After the frantic search about the cottage, the conclusion was reached that it may not have made it off the ferry boat.
Mom and Austin made a quick trip to town where they found the backpack, and all of its contents, in the safe keeping of the BOLO captain who was just finishing up the days trips to the big island.
As always, the natives here watch-out for each other and the tourists that visit their islands.
