    Default Where the weather suits our clothes part 2

    Managed a decent nights sleep considering the 8 hour time difference headed down to breakfast a couple of mugs of coffee was needed to wash down the half stack of pancakes ( I feel a theme coming along ) Mary settled for fresh fruit. We headed off to the airport again making use of the free shuttle LA was wet and windy yuk checked in our luggage in the terminal on our ticket but told our flight from the adjacent terminal so set off next door LA is a big airport but doesnít have huge amounts to do I guess we get spoiled elsewhere we found our gate ok and passed the time away people watching . Our onward flight was with Delta and we soon boarded itís another 5.5 hours outbound which dragged a bit there are only so many films to watch but eventually we was on finals to Honolulu which is an amazing approach as you come in over Pearl Harbour our cases soon arrived and we heard to the Roberts desk for our prearranged shuttle after a fair wait we was taken outside to more confusion but eventually 6 of us where placed on a full size coach itís only a short transfer and we soon arrived at the hotel which was under refurbishment our bit was complete so no worries we had booked a Diamond Head view which didnít disappoint with great views . We headed out to stretch our legs and get our bearings Honolulu is a City on the beach the main area is a mix of shops restaurants and hotels sitting right on the beach and is full of life and has a real buzz about it . For our evening meal we chose Cheeseburger in Paradise a favourite of ours in this part of the world they offer reasonable prices and decent cocktails [ATTACH39C31BA0-9DBB-4197-B396-E02B2E019014.jpg9920077E-E954-4938-9866-FA0956426530.jpgA0920992-994B-446F-987F-075003D09B8E.jpg443E99CE-7ED0-46CD-8713-05D83EF5D7BF.jpg7C3D5230-247A-4F33-8EFB-2C99C6DC612C.jpg

    Very nice! We stayed a bit further west of there, and didn't have your magnificent view (though we did have a view of the ocean). It felt like a fairly long flight from Orlando, so I can't quite imagine how tired you must have been after all of your flying.

    I hate LAX, like you say there is simply nothing to do there at all. Very un-Californian to get wet and windy, but the locals would have been celebrating the rain I'm sure.

    Hotel room view looks amazing.
    5 Trips to Florida, Christmas in LA, Disneyland Paris twice and odd days here and there.

    All my trip reports are now HERE.

    I love that approach into Honolulu. All going well, we get to do this again this year. Oh, I loved Cheeseburger in Paradise. I had forgotten that there is one in Waikiki as well.

    That final approach to Honolulu is almost worth the l-o-n-g flight (almost!). And the beach at Waikiki is just too photogenic for words (can't help but imagine Elvis doing his thing there!!).

    One day LAX will catch up with the rest of the (airport) world - but the rest of the world will have moved on

    We won't be flying in, but looking forward to seeing these sights for ourselves.
    Great view from your room.

    It's still incredibly pretty from the ocean, sk. We saw it both ways, and neither will disappoint.
