Hawaii….The first day

As our 9 hour flight finally got under 30 minutes we started seeing the top of Islands in the clouds.  We knew we almost were here.  As the plane turned to line up for landing…soon we saw our Hotel from the air, then Pearl Harbor, and soon we were landed.  The air port was open air and not as large as I thought. We got our luggage and rental car and off to Ko Olina.  The land scape reminded me of California but was changing.  Flat here, hills, mountains over there.  The main Highway H1 took us to our beautiful hotel.

By now the jet lag was setting in and we really was hope to not goto bed so late.  We ate a tasty meal by the ocean, and took a nice evening stroll.   From our room I took pictures of the sunset and finally we couldn’t keep the eyes open.

Needless to say we were up early and by 9:30 am we had done a lot!!  Our big even for today was our snorkeling and sailing.  What a great experience that was.  I loved standing on the sailboat with the wind in my face.  It was refreshing and very relaxing.  We got to see spinner dolphins that were very active with many babies.   We then got to were we were able to snorkel!  That was amazing!!!  There were so many fish!  We took some photos with a water camera so it will be interesting to see what they look like when they are done!

So over all, Hawaii has been awesome!  I could like live here.  Tomorrow we actually leave our little area of paradise and see more of Hawaii!

Sorry about so many post of this book…this was the book that told about about Hawaii, what to see, what not to see and history of the Island.  I really enjoyed the book a lot and would recommend it to anyone going….just remember to bring it with you.  We forgot ours at home, but I read it enough to remember some of what we need!
