navy life

Welcome to Hawai’i

Well, we made it. We’re in Honolulu at a Best Western near the Navy base. And the best news: We have the kitties!

The trip yesterday was long and exhausting. We had to be at the airport at 4am to drop off the cats for their 6am flight, then we boarded at 6:30 and arrive in HI around 7:30pm Eastern time.

First impressions? The base is much prettier than the one in Virginia. Hands down, it’s the prettiest Navy base I’ve seen yet. There are flowers everywhere and the water (as we flew in yesterday) looks gorgeous. It’s hard to say much more than that, though, because everything is very… crowded. Congested, I guess. The hotel is near the base and the airport. Everything is “near” everything else because it’s all crammed into one area, along with all the people, and it’s hard to see anything really. I guess it’ll get better after we get our car…

Anyway, that’s about it. No photos yet, but I’ll get them up as I can.

OH! We definitely saw the Grand Canyon yesterday as we flew over the country. Way cool.

Call me if you wish, but remember that I am now six hours behind Eastern time. ^_^

  1. Oh, there will be! I have to have time to get them all uploaded, and decide how I’m going to share them (either behind post-cuts here or through Shutterfly or something)…

    And yes, I think we might be. I’m on Hawaiian time, which I think makes me… 20 hours behind you, but technically closer in terms of time of day. Maybe my lunch is your breakfast of the next morning? We’ll figure it out. ^_^

  2. Hi! I’m a military spouse, too! Do you have a post on how you sent your cats to Hawaii? That’s the one thing that really scares me is having to send our dog, and have him quarantined 😦 thank you!
