Aloha


I've been up since 3:30 AM to catch an 8 o'clock flight to Honolulu which took 7 hours from Phoenix. My sis and I had lunch over our two hour delay and boarded a smaller Hawaiian Air plane for a 40 minute jaunt to Kona on the Big Island. While awaiting take off, there was a delay necessitated by one last passenger. Amid a flutter of activity involving Special Agents and a small motorcade on the tarmac, we watched President George Bush get out of a limo and embark on our plane. We were 6 rows behind him but his bodyguards buffered him from prying eyes and our attempts at documenting our encounter with photos. I was impressed that he used a public airliner and was not on a private jet.

I hope that's not an indication of how the rest of your Hawaiian getaway will go. It can only get better, right?!
