Walking And Eating Our Through HNL

We lunched today, as we have on previous trips, at the Todai Restaurant, an Asian buffet much favored by Japanese tour groups.

It's not fancy, close to cafeteria-style, but the food is good. The sushi was perhaps less impressive than on previous visits, but we'd like to think that this is because we're raising our own standards.

The Holiday Inn Beachcomber kept us waiting for our room, although we could have had a room without an ocean view when we arrived shortly before noon. It was 3:10 p.m. by the time we got our room on the 24th floor, but it's proved to be a very pleasant room that's obviously been refurbished.

We'd walked on the treadmills at the Hilton Prince Kuhio before checking out this morning, and strolled the better part of a mile down to the Todai for lunch, so we didn't feel bad about parking in Jimmy Buffett's at the Beachcomber for a couple of their "perfect" Margaritas, along with some nacho appetizers.

Now it's time for bed before a 10:45 a.m. pick up by the shuttle folks and a 1:40 p.m. flight HNL-SFO-SEA flight that will land us in SEA at some point after Midnight.
