#############

First bp gas prices akron ohio, after a few too many times of our flight from MSP to HNL being delayed and missing a connecting flight to our final destination island, most recently last winter, we tried the new Lāna`i Air option of getting from HNL to LNY. Yes it is very expensive, $1000 round trip total for the two of us, but in the end this was worth every penny. Instead of potentially having to miss a scheduled commercial flight if our flight from the mainland was late, which would have resulted in the extra cost of a couple cab rides, a night in Honolulu, and meals, Lāna`i Air assured us that if our flight was late they would do everything possible to get us to Lāna`i that night. We stayed at the Four Seasons Lāna`i for 10 nights, with an every 5th night free promotion, so we would have lost that free night if we had been stuck in Honolulu. That alone would have recouped the extra cost of the charter flight. It turns out that our Delta flight from MSP actually landed early, but that lead to another benefit from our choice. Although we had reserved a 5:30 pm flight time to LNY, the plane was waiting for us at 4:30 and we arrived on Lāna`i at 5 pm and were at the Four Seasons Lāna`i at about 5:20. This is one of the first times ever that we arrived in daylight electricity symbols ks2! If we had waited for the Hawaiian Air flight it would have been well after 8 pm before we would have arrived at the resort, assuming that gas 2015 flight was on time. That nearly extra 3 hours made us feel our vacation started that first day rather than writing it off as a long travel day. Everyone was super friendly from the gentleman who met us as we departed to our Delta flight and escorted us to the waiting car that took us to the private airfield, to the car driver, and the pilots. The plane was super comfortable with reclining/rotating leather seats, Bose noise cancelling headsets, water and a smooth flight with great views. The return also went perfectly, allowing us to spend more time at the resort and less waiting at airports on the way home. Although the plane seats 6 people, we were the only 2 on both flights. We were told that electricity edison Lāna`i Air has been very popular, and they are expanding the fleet from 2 to 6 planes. Obviously, at this price point, this is not an option for most, but I would give up many things that cost extra during a stay, to help fund the extra $700 this Lāna`i Air flight cost.

Once at the resort, we got the exact room we had requested, in a nice quiet area in building 2. Thanks to having a Four Seasons Preferred Partner travel agent, they were able to secure a room upgrade at booking, which included the free breakfast and a $100 resort credit (which was used up the first day). We had an “ocean front” room, which directly faced the ocean with a stunning view. This is the standard size room, which can seem a little cramped with the fair amount of furniture they put in the room, but still very nice. There is a couch, 2 chairs, desk, significant dresser drawer space, plenty of closest space, and a wonderful bathroom la gas with double sinks, separate tub and shower, and private toilet (a Toto that automatically lifts the seat cover when approached, flushes when you get up and closes the seat cover when one walks away). The lanai is fairly spacious with a table, 2 chairs and a lounge chair. There is a massive TV, which we really never used, but most would find it very nice. The blinds roll down from the top of the windows with a push of a button, and all the lighting is easily controlled with an array of buttons all around the room to various levels of brightness. The air conditioning was very efficient and kept the room comfortable.

Otherwise, the resort is very nice electricity grid code since the major renovation a couple years ago. Extensive new landscaping around the two pools (one adult and one family), although they are relatively close to each other, so one does not fully escape the noise from the other pool at the adult pool. The usual gardens between all the buildings remain outstanding. They have added some private little alcoves facing the ocean on the west side of the resort. Not really sure of their purpose, and I never saw anyone using them. We spent most days at the beach gas and bloating after every meal as the weather was nice and the surf low throughout the trip (only one day of rain during our 10 day stay). Snorkeling was excellent, and the beach uncrowded except for the 3 days that the big group was there occupying 120 of the 200 rooms. We saw whales from the shore several days, and the dolphins came into the bay about 3 times that we saw. Generally, the people were well behaved and did not swim over to them, except one day when a few people from the Trilogy group 66 gas station near me did. Finally the Trilogy guide paddled over on his board and made them return to the other side of the bay. The Four Seasons staff actually called the authorities since it is illegal to approach the dolphins, but I never saw anyone actually come and enforce the law. When they were not being harassed, the dolphins were only 100 feet off shore. They are so much fun to watch from the beach. The staff at the beach is excellent, bringing free treats to eat periodically and one can order food from the poolside restaurant delivered straight to your beach chair. The fish taco is only OK, but the fish sandwich and shrimp are good choices. The fitness center is very gas bloating nice and complementary with excellent ocean views. We did a couple’s massage at the spa, which was outstanding, but unbelievably expensive. The spa facilities are OK with a steam room and sauna, but nothing like the one at Hualalai. Apparently the new spa that will be at the Lodge when it reopens to promised to be great.

The short hike up to Pu`u Pehe overlook is always wonderful. We did not get out on the Fisherman’s Trail this time, but saw others doing it. And we did not do the Koloiki Ridge hike by the Lodge, but were told it is still possible even with the Lodge closed. One just has to park by the cemetery and start from there along the Munro Trail. The Trail is only open to walking and ATVs, Jeeps are no longer allowed.

Another highlight of the trip was renting a Jeep from gas leak in car the resort ($155 for 24 hours). This time we went to Shipwreck beach, the cat sanctuary and Kaunolu with some time in town to visit and have lunch. We were told the Garden of the Gods and down to Polihua were still too wet to drive from heavy rains earlier in the month. Although we are dog people, the cat sanctuary is super fun. The volunteers and staff have done such a good job taking care of the 600+ cats. It is a great facility and the cats love visitors. Kaunolu is probably my favorite place to take a Jeep. It has such beautiful views, the hiking is nice and not too difficult, the historic ruins have been enhanced with excellent informational signs, and it is a nice place to have a picnic lunch. This time we decided to skip the picnic and have a delicious Mahi burger at the Blue Ginger. Still one of the best fish sandwiches I have ever had. The deer are everywhere along the dirt roads so drive slow as they cut across the roads often. We were told there are 18,000 deer now on an island with only 3000 people. There static electricity definition physics is local venison on the menus every night.

In town we visited the Mike Carroll Gallery and it was so much fun to see Kat and Mike. We bought a beautiful original oil painting of the walking path from Hulopoe Beach up to the resort. A walk we have taken innumerable times. There is so much to find at the gallery. It is great place to get something special gas x dosage pregnancy to remember your trip. For the 2nd year in a row we had a celebrity sighting in the gallery. There are a few celebrities who have cottages in town or visit the island regularly. We told Kat and Mike that they have to promise us a celebrity every year now. 

The Hula Hut (which replaced the Dis n’ Dat shop) has very nice things and is worth a stop. And the Local Gentry still has some of the best resort wear in the islands at reasonable prices compared to the stores at the FS. Jenna and her staff are always so friendly. Mrs. V and I both found nice shirts that we bought. The local art center is also a nice place to stop and see some art work by local artists. We didn’t get a chance to eat at Pele’s this trip, but were told by locals that the negative reviews they get on the internet are not justified and it is worth a stop.

The Lodge at Koele is still under renovation. There had been plans to open this past winter, but from electricity tattoo designs the looks of things as we drove by, there is a lot of work to still do. The ongoing joke on the island is that it will open by Thanksgiving; they are just not sure what year. The plans certainly sound ambitious, but I will hold out judgement electricity distribution companies until I see things for myself.

The best meals we had were at the Nobu, the Sports Bar and the Lāna`i City Grill at the Hotel Lāna`i. The One Forty restaurant was good, but just as expensive as Nobu without as good of selections on the menu. We did like the mushroom soup, sea bass and yellowfin tuna entrée special. At Nobu recommended choices include the Shitake salad, yellowfin sashimi, venison steak, black cod miso, Ahi Wasabi, whitefish tempura, venison kabob, whitefish sashimi, tempura king crab and tenderloin beef teriyaki. At the Sports Bar the venison burger, venison pizza and the Mahi fresh catch were our favorites ideal gas questions. And at the Lāna`i City Grill the highlights were a mushroom soup, O`pakapaka. They still have some things to work out there, but worth another try.

Our return to MSP was uneventful, but thanks to 2 snowstorms while we were gone, our hopes of returning to an early spring around March 1st were dashed. And there was another storm a couple days after we got back. We are already planning a return next year. It is essential to get away from the Cold White North every winter, at least for several days.
