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. ^_^
