Today we managed to leave early and get back to Vegas in time to have banana cream pie, coconut cream pie and lemon meringue pie at coco's where we had breakfast the other morning....... The banana cream pie was amazing and one of the best pies I have had. The diner was a little unkept, but had decent servings of food, friendly service and were well priced (in Vegas this is unusual!) it is similar to a Dennys style of place.

We had a good drive back, it didn't seem as long as it actually was and we are experts at USA driving now.........

We then headed to the airport to return the car and make our way to the last part of our trip - Hawaii! My goodness has the time flown........ I am currently writing to you from our Hawaii airlines flight (great airline to travel with- staff are very friendly and helpful) they still provide a meal - they are the only airline in North America to do so!
The staff at Vegas airport however, not so much, all of the airports in the USA so far have been great, clean, well resourced and friendly staff, but not Vegas!

We are looking forward to 5 days of beach, sleep and sun......perhaps some shopping in there somewhere!

Will post some photos tomorrow of the beautiful Waikiki - until then, take care.

A fun update to share, getting a cab or transport for 5 can be tricky, we arrived at Honolulu airport and the cab dispatcher at the airport called for a cab that would fit 5. What should show up but a whites etched limo with a yellow taxi sign lit up on top! You should have seen the boys faces! That certainly got a smile after all that travel!
