There was not a person in line when I went through security at the airport. It is all open air, like other tropical airports I have flown into or out of. So different from the airports where I come from! It was a short flight to Honolulu, not even enough time to play Scrabble! We took a shuttle from Honolulu airport to our hotel, had some lunch and checked in. Below is the view of Waikiki Beach from our balcony. Bill is due to arrive later today and we will have 6 more days in Paradise! I can't imagine anything better than the Big Island of Hawaii, but I'll keep an open mind.
