42 - Hawaii

Purely travel....uneventful but full flights from Honolulu to LAX and from LAX to Charlotte so lots of delays to get all the folks settled.   

We were in first class, but unfortunately they were just "regular" first class seats (not lay-flat) so it was really hard to sleep.  It was two 5 hour hops so pretty hard to get to sleep anyway.  I watched the Secret Life of Bees and Unbroken - both movies that I had read the book.  Pretty good representation of the book in both cases.

Had a great final veggie meal - lentil chili with polenta, roast asparagus and carrots,  a nice nori roll and a Hawaiian salad.  I really can't figure out how they get such nice meals served at 35000 feet.  Very yummy! 

I tried to take a photo of all the lights of Los Angeles as we departed, but I just couldn't get a good shot in the dark out the oval airplane window, so you'll just have to take my word that there are a lot of people in Los Angeles!!!

Rented a car and drove home (dropped the car off in Pittsboro at Enterprise, so very handy).  We'll need a day to recover from the 24+ hours with no real sleep!  (Somehow it turned a bit of autumn while we were gone!)
