The Pineappleman Returns to Oahu: Tikis and Mai Tais Day 1

We arrived in Oahu with 3 extra hours from the time change --so we actually had a little time to enjoy our arrival day.   

We checked into the Hilton Hawaiian Village and noticed our first Tiki of the trip located at the base of our hotel tower.

The Hilton Hawaiian Village is a huge resort with multiple towers and tons of shops and restaurants.   A partial ocean view that isn't too shabby.

We were hungry so we headed down stairs to check out the hotel and grab a bit to eat at the Tropics Bar and Grille for an early dinner and our first Tiki drinks of the trip

Not a bad start to our vacation.  It was my first trip back to Oahu since the OJ car chase and my wife's first trip.

Since it had been so long since my last trip and my wife's first time here I thought that we would start off the trip with a little tour down the beach.

Waikiki Beach

We wandered along the  boardwalk as far as the Sheraton.  A great hotel that I would totally pick to stay at on a future trip.

Here is a picture of The Edge Pool at the Sheraton Waikiki.... 
You can't get a better pool view than this one.

Mai Tai at the Edge Pool

We arrived back at our hotel just in time for the Torch lighting.
Here is a picture for all the ladies of the Torch guy.

We were tired so decided to head up to our room to watch the Sunset and catch the Hilton Hawaiian Village firework show.
The Sunset was great.....The Fireworks show.......well we blew that.
It goes off on the other side of the Rainbow Tower at the far left of the picture below we could only see the reflection of the show in the building to the right.    My mistake,

Up next Day 2 a Trip to Aulani.......I'll probably be posting all my Aulani pictures over on my Disney blog.....But I'll post links on my Pineappleman Facebook page.
