We managed to pass the 11 hours and we were finally landing in LA! A quick change of terminals and we were waiting for our flight with Delta to Hawaii. Low & Behold there was not a Starbucks in the terminal (say what?!) and we were dying for an iced cinnamon dolce latte! We embarked on a further 6 hours of journey to finally land in Hawaii.
Alamo had called to say that they would bring us our jeep on a tow truck to our hotel... how nice of them! We quickly got ready so that we could head to the beach as soon as it arrived!
It turned out we had to wait a couple of hours... but we enjoyed an Acai Bowl at the cafe connected to our hotel and were delighted to see our jeep when it arrived, and off we went!
Our first stop was to head back to Hawaii Kai- the area where Whitney used to live. It felt wonderful to be back. We grabbed a CDL from the Starbucks we used to frequent (and where I sent Whitney on her journey to getting engaged) and sat by the beautiful water.
Continuing our reminiscing we headed to our favourite beach (and where we got engaged), Waimanalo beach! It was beautiful as ever, though the hut where we got engaged under is sadly no longer there. It is such a great beach as not only is it stunning but it is quite secluded and whilst it is never deserted, it is never, ever packed.
We basked in the Hawaiian sun and Whitney even spotted a cloud that looked like a genie's lamp. This was not too long after Robin Williams sad passing and we couldn't help but think of him!
Later that night we had a wonder around Waikiki, had a very tasty nutty Hawaiian latte from Honolulu Coffee and ended up eating breakfast at around midnight.. jet lag!!
Come back to find out what we managed to get up to the rest of our Hawaii trip...
