My Arrival into Honolulu, Hawaii; Day 1

WOW ... I love this shot I took ... One day perhaps I'll experience being on a sailboat let alone just taking a photo!

Prepping my blog ...I still can't believe I'm approaching Honolulu ... it's been a long flight, in one sense, knowing I was suppose to arrive at 10:08pm and meet-up with the other TB'ers and yet my flight landed at 2:45am Honolulu time :( 

I was sincerely disappointed as I only booked my vacation from the 4th through the 8th and I would have been able to take in a bit of the evening with all the TB’ers who arrived by this day ... but a smile still came across my face not only when I landed but as I walked I saw a familiar face, yes, aloha_keith's ...

We gave each other a hug as we hadn't seen each other since his first ever TB meet-up that Dan and I put on in Banff, Alberta ... that meet-up made Keith the meet-up man he is, and clearly, I'm so happy he came to Banff back in July 2009 ...

I wasn't expecting it nor did I know it's a tradition but he presented me with a lei ... but in doing some research I will note it is a wreath presented to new visitors upon arriving or leaving as a symbol of affection ... smiled, in embarrassment to myself, but wore it proudly knowing it was some form or way of welcoming and to think it was strung with fresh flowers, Keith you didn't have to ... what a guy going all out for all TB'ers who proudly flew into Hawaii for this TB meet-up/vacation

I slept for hmmm 3 and a ½ hours and got up reluctantly at 7:50am though we didn't the house till about 9:15 ... Keith prepped coffee, much needed and we headed to the beaches etc. As I enter my photos I'll expand ...
