Day three dawned……

Day three dawned for us, but we missed our alarm and slept through the pick up time for our Arizona & Missouri Trip to Pearl Harbour……fortunately we have been able to re-schedule for Friday.

We were all sleeping soundly when the phone rang telling us they were waiting for us downstairs, we frantically tried to get ready in record time, but unfortunately by the time we got to the pick up point they had left us behind!

So we decided to have breakfast at Jimmy Buffet’s instead.

It took a little while for us to sort out a plan for the day, but we managed to fill the day.

Lunch was an interesting all you can eat buffet. The girls tried their first local beer, Longboard. I stuck to what I knew Heinekens.

Our first look at Waikiki Beach.  The colour of the water is just beautiful.

Police cars right where you would expect to find them……outside the police station!

P1050022 We stumbled upon some local markets, and we had an enjoyable stroll through checking out their wares.

Our dinner tonight was at Dukes. Followed by a stroll through Macy’s and then back to our room to work out how to correctly set our alarm, and order a wake up call!

A beautiful fresh flower arrangement was in the lobby along with this framed Hawaiian Quilt.

The others are now relaxing in bed reading, after my blog update I’ll be joining them.

Thanks for visiting.

Gosh, stress but a good outcome with being able to reschedule at least and you didn't waste the day in any way. All in all a great day in paradise. xx
