With some inside info from Mike’s high school buddy we were able to stay in a great building in Waikiki. Our first unit had a fabulous view of the ocean, lagoon, pool, and FIREWORKS for a few nights. Then the second unit (in the same building) had a view of the ocean, marina, and courtyard. It was a perfect spot for us!
So, after getting settled into our space, we visited another old friend (of the non-human variety) the Old Navy store. Yes, we were in need of swimwear for Mike, G, and L, after Mike left them drying on a clothesline in Rotorua. :/ I ended up with a pair of flip flops (called slippers in Hawaii) and a cover-up…because…um…well they went perfectly with my suit! 🙂 We got our beach gear on and headed out to the beach and pool to check things out.
I fell asleep on the bed after dinner and woke up to fireworks from our balcony at 7:45!! Leo had fallen asleep, too, and thought we were at the airport and was trying to figure out what was banging! 🙂 The fireworks were super cool!! Lights out at 9 pm for all of us as we were tired! 🙂
Postcard picture morning in Honolulu with bacon, fresh pineapple, and Kona coffee for breakfast on the lanai!! 🙂
The kids and I got our suits on and headed down to the pool while Mike got caught up on emails, etc.
