We arrived in Honolulu at 8:30 pm Hawaii time, which was 11:30 pm California time.
We took a Speedi Shuttle - the cheapest mode of transportation from the airport to Waikiki - FYI, reserve a seat in advance - to Fort Derussey, an American military facility on Waikiki Beach on which is located the Hale Koa (which means "House of the Warrior" in Hawaiian), a hotel available for use by active duty and retired members of the military and their families.
We'd stayed at the Hale Koa on our first visit to Hawaii two years ago (see post from 4/2/2015),
We had other places to go and things to see.
