Honolulu Déjà Vu

Yesterday was leisurely, considering we flew SEA-LAX-HNL. SEA-LAX took off around 11:00 a.m., we relaxed for an hour or so in the LAX RCC between flights, and LAX-HNL was aided by tail winds, allowing us to land nearly an hour early.

We caught the same Roberts airport shuttle into Honolulu and pointedly asked the employees how long this would take, describing our 16-stop marathon the other day. They actually stopped the queue after us, explaining to those behind us that they couldn't have too many hotel stops on one bus. Despite that, we bailed out at the Sheraton Waikiki and walked less than ten minutes to get to the Hilton Prince Kuhio on a beautiful, if crowded, Friday night.

After checking in and leaving our bags in the room, we strolled around the beach area for an hour. On a whim we stopped at our first-ever Häagen-Dazs shop for ice cream cones. $9.70 for two single-scoop waffle cones! On top of that, Brian's cone leaked out the bottom at how many cents a drip?

We're hopping a couple of blocks over to the Holiday Inn Resort later today (working on an Intercontinental promotion) on our final (and only) full day in Honolulu in, well, two days.
