I have touched down in Hawaii! It was amazing from the start. As soon as you get off the plane you go outside. The walk to baggage is outdoors. Immediately you see the mountains. There are birds hopping around the food court it is so open.
Aaron greeted me at baggage with a beautiful lei! It smelled so sweet!
We had dinner at a tiki bar over looking Waikiki Beach.
Afterwards we walked on the beach as the sun went down.
I love how they light torches here when it gets dark.
I have been learning how to use my new camera. I took a lot of pictures of this statue. It is Duke Kahanamoku.
From wikipedia: Duke Paoa Kahinu Mokoe Hulikohola Kahanamoku (August 24, 1890 – January 22, 1968) was a Hawaiian swimmer, actor, lawman, early beach volleyball player and businessman credited with spreading the sport of surfing. He was a five-time Olympic medalist in swimming.
A good first day in Hawaii I would say!
