We woke up at 1:30 AM so we could get to PDX for our 5:45 flight by the time we went to bed that evening at 8:30 PM (3 hour time difference) Hawaiian time we were beat.
Our flights were fairly uneventful and we arrived at noon in Hawaii.
We got to Dollar and rented a nice boring car and were off to Costco where the Cates happened to be. This was just good timing as it wasn't planned out ahead if time. Then off to find out if a condo booked online was going to work.
I'm always nervous when I book anything but a hotel but this condo is great. It's not upscale because we wanted a good price but it is very nice. (We're sharing with the Cates)
We spent the afternoon at the pool area that over looks the ocean and back in our room for a gorgeous view of the setting sun.
