The last leg of our journey was a two-night stay on Oahu. The kids were so exhausted from traveling and staying up late that Patrick and Charlie both fell asleep sitting up in the shuttle from the airport to our hotel.
This is the view from our hotel. The hotel wasn't anything spectacular, but it met all our needs. We had two bedrooms, a living room and kitchenette. Jim and I enjoyed a drink on the balcony after the kids were in bed. We were walking distance from Waikiki Beach and several shops and restaurants.
On our first night, we walked to Waikiki Beach. Along the way we saw people hula hooping in a park. We all joined in!
The kids had fun playing in the sand.
We took a boat to the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial. It was incredible. I found the aerial picture below online. It shows how the memorial spans the middle of the sunken battleship where 1,177 crewmen lost their lives.
Here is the entrance to the memorial from the boat. As you can see, we visited on a beautiful day. If it is too windy, they won't take you over to the memorial.
The next day we wandered around town until our late, late flight. Since we had so many people it cost just as much to take a limo to the airport as it would to take the shuttle. Obviously, we opted for the limo!
