Hawaii – Day 1 – Airports

It’s been a long day. We got up at 5:30 MST in our home in American Fork, Utah. We got out the door by 6:30 and to the SLC airport by 7:30. We got through security and our flight to Denver passed without excitement. We grabbed some lunch at an overpriced wrap place in the Denver concourse and headed to the next plane.

The flight between Denver and Honolulu was the longest of my life, literally. Seven and a half hours in one airline seat. We had two movies and various TV shows to watch (“It Might Get Loud” was a documentary that I’d been meaning to check out anyway, and “Elf” is always fun), but it felt like forever. My legs were so tired of sitting.

We got to Honolulu thinking that we’d have only 45 minutes to get our luggage and get to our next flight to Lihue. Fortunately, it only took us a couple of minutes to grab the bags and get to a shuttle that took us right where we needed to go. Unfortunately, our flight to Lihue has been delayed by an hour and a half, so we’ve got a lot of time to kill. Right now, Sarah is perusing brochures for touristy things to do in Lihue (my little planner!) and I’m writing.

It’s now almost 9:00 Utah time (I think), but before we get to go to bed, we’ve got to take another flight, pick up our luggage, get our rental car, check in at our resort, then find someplace to buy groceries. The weather here is nice and warm and humid, and what I’ve seen so far of Hawaii (the outside of the airport) was nice.
