A Long Day in the Air

Today was the day we finally headed to Hawaii.  We arose early (4:30 am) to head to Elaine and Drew's as Drew had offered to take us to the airport.  We arrived at the airport in Charlotte at about 6 am for our 7:40 am flight to Salt Lake City.  Getting through security should have been easy as we usually get the TSA Precheck, but Fred's hip always causes him to be double checked and our weighted GPS holder made them take a look at our backpack.  We made our way to our gate, got a bit of breakfast and soon were on our way winging west toward Salt Lake City.  We arrived at Salt Lake City a few minutes ahead of schedule and were delighted to find that our connecting flight was only 7 gates away.  This flight was also on time and we arrived in Honolulu by our scheduled time.  Both flights were uneventful.

Arriving in Honolulu, we were soon off to the hotel.  Our hotel is advertized as the tallest in Waikiki and on Tuesday afternoons they serve mai tias on the roof, so of course we had to take advantage of the offer which also provided us with an opportunity to get some nice pictures of Diamond Head.  

From there we walked down to Waikiki Beach and grabbed some dinner.  Tomorrow we will visit the Arizona Memorial.
