|First day of our trip and we got to share part of it with Tan and Trav, who gave us a ride to the airport. It would have been great if they could have joined us.|
The happy travelers looking forward to some nice, warm, sunny, dry weather.
|We had a short wait at the airport for our flight to Seattle. This is the new Spinnakers lounge.|
Our plane to Seattle was about 1/4 full.
|It looks like the propeller wasn't turning, but we made it safely.|
We got to ride around on the train cars at SeaTac as our departure gate was changed.
|We had about a 4 hour wait at the Seattle airport,
enough time to have a meal at Anthony's and watch the goings on in the
Alaska Air part of the airport. Our flight left on time, around
6:30, full plane as usual. Seemed like a smooth flight, and got
into Kona around 9:20, which makes it a 6 hour flight. We picked
up our rental car which turned out to be a Mazda 5. Seems nice,
although it was pretty dark in the lot. We had time to stop at
Foodland, the grocery store at Mauna Lani and pick up a couple of
things. Lucky that it is open until 11:00.
The condo looks great, just as we remember it. It is nice and warm here, the air smells like Hawaii, with a bit of a breeze. Too bad it's midnight here as I enter this, we feel pretty energized.
