It seemed fitting to make a few family photos here.
The falls were beautiful, and we rested there for a while before heading back down the trail to our car.
It was almost game time, so we headed back to Giovanni Pastrami's to have lunch and watch the game on one of their big-screen TVs. Everyone knows how that whole deal went down, but the food was excellent.
We walked back down to the beach at Fort DeRussy for one last sunset and then headed on over to the airport as the day was ending for most folks in Honolulu. Not so for this crew! We boarded the plane around 10 p.m. and spent the night flying over the Pacific Ocean. We landed in L.A. about 6:00 in the morning and caught our final flight home.
It was 2:30 p.m. when we finally landed, but it seemed much later to us. We were all ready to get home and into our beds for a long, long sleep.
What a wonderful vacation! We had so much fun and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Regardless, one of the nicest things about going away is coming home. There's no place like it, we've heard.
