I finally have a minute to start my Hawai'i posts. I think I will do it in Days since I have many pictures to upload and memories to blog. Our 8 day adventure started out with a 15 hour flight adventure (we were on the runway in Dallas for 3 hours before taking off due to a mechanical issue...which made for a 12 hour flight (supposed to be 9). That was a tough, tough flight. We go through LA on the way home, so I have great expectations for better flying. Day 1, we spent in Honolulu, our friends the Sage's invited us to stay a night with them there before heading to Maui. We did some just do sight seeing and spent a few hours on the beach.

|We hiked to the top of "Diamond Head" an inactive volcano/crater. It was about a 90 minute hike up and back down. Great view of the big city of Honolulu. It was like looking out over New York or Chicago. I didn't realize how "big city" Honolulu was.|
