Hawaii - day 1

Well my plan of doing a blog each night of our holiday didn't happen LOL. We were on the go all day and usually back at the hotel too late for me to put anything down that would make any sense !!
These posts might be pretty detailed as I am putting this all down so I remember it all myself!
So here it all is.

We had a pretty good flight over, I managed to sleep for a couple of hours thanks to the travel sickness tablets!
We arrived in sunny Honolulu at about 7.45 am and got to our hotel about 9am. We had  private condo rental in a hotel  so we were able to check into our room straight away which was nice.

So we dumped our luggage  and after checking out the great room and fantastic view headed out to find some breakfast. IHOP across the street, was pretty good. Stopped at an infamous ABC store on the way back to hotel to stock up some groceries and snacks. We were getting pretty sleepy by now so set the alarm and allowed ourselves a 2 hour nap.

 We then headed down the beach into Waikiki, this was probably about 20 minutes, 

then had a lovely dinner in Dukes on the beach. The food was delicious and we had a great table with a view out to the ocean.

 Walked back on the beach all the way back to our hotel and then crashed.
