Serendipity at The Hilton Hawaiian Village
OK, I'm back, and the blog now has a Flickr link. Each day I will add a couple of Andoid photos of the highlights of our vacation along with a brief comment. Since we will have no computer with us, the pics on the Canon Xsi will have to wait. It will be fun to share with you each day.
After three quick days on Maui 21 years ago, our Apple Vacation took us to Honolulu. I have to tell you that my first impression of that city was not good after the idylic quiet of Maui. We would later learn how lovely Oahu is when you have a car to get around the island.
We had a computer breakdown when we checked in to the massive city with a city....The Hilton Hawaiian Village. Mrs. Carter got in her room, and ours still had people in the room, so the porter made a call and took us to another room, that had luggage in it, and he apologizes profusely, put us in an elevator to the 32nd floor, and we spent our time in the Hilton executive suite. It was huge, had balconies on two corners overlooking Diamondhead and the north, a shower large enough to run laps in. We pinched ourselves and enjoyed every moment of this serendipity.
