November 10, 2007 – Well it seems to be that time of the year again. Well not so much the time of the year, but rather that time of the bi-annum. (At least that’s what I think you call something that happens about every two years. We’re off to Hawaii with our good friends Steve and Judy! This time our destination is Kauai… the Garden Island. (You probably already guessed that if you read the title!)  

Alaska Airlines has started flying directly into the City of Lihue on the island of Kauai and we’ve booked us some cheap seats. The flight doesn’t leave Seattle until 4:30 which was a little weird… having the entire day to pack rather than doing it the night before… and no early morning rush hour trips to the airport… just take your time… so we’re starting Island Time a little early. And since we’re flying direct to Lihue, there is no messing around with the inter-island flights. Though I am going to miss the Wiki-Wiki!  

The flight was about 5 ½ hours over… and on a smaller plane (they fly the 737) it was getting a little claustrophobic.  

But we’re here!!! It’s late (10:00pm Hawaii time) and we’re going to unpack and settle into our room… tomorrow we wake up and have the entire day on the island!
