The Trip And Day One At The Lodge
Great flight and we were ready to get off and have fun! But alas, Lanai requires a short jaunt from Honolulu.
Pearl Harbor and The Honolulu International Airport
Gives one a little perspective of Honolulu
Big Puddle Jumper Was Awaiting Our Arrival
The de Havilland Canada Dash 8 (sometimes abbreviated as -8) is a series of twin-engined, medium range, turboprop airliners introduced by de Havilland Canada (DHC) in 1984. They are now produced by Bombardier Aerospace, which purchased DHC from Boeing in 1992.
Welcome ToLanai, The Dry Island
Lāna`i Airport (IATA: LNY, ICAO: PHNY) is a public airport located 3 miles (5 km) southwest of Lāna`i City, serving as the only airport of the island of Lānaʻi, Hawai`i . Lanai Airport occupies 505 acres about three miles southwest of Lanai City on the island of Lanai. The airport has a single runway and primarily serves scheduled interisland and commuter/air taxi traffic, with some unscheduled charter and general aviation activity. A new passenger terminal complex was recently constructed to replace the aging facilities. The new complex includes improved roadway access, parking, and rental car facilities, as well as new cargo and airport support facilities. The runway is proposed to be extended in the future to permit use by jet aircraft without payload restriction. The existing airport access roadway from Kaumalaupau Highway will continue to serve as the primary access route from Lanai Cit
The Lodge Just As We Remembered From 1999 and 2006
Relaxing In The Lodge Awaiting Our Room
It was fun to have afternoon tea in the great room and sit by the fireplace in the evening and listen to the music playing in the background!
Time For A Walk In The Gardens
A Visit To The Orchid Room On The Grounds
Did you know? Orchidaceae (or Orchid family) is the largest family of the flowering plants (Angiospermae). The Royal Botanical Gardens of Kew list 880 genera and nearly 22,000 accepted species, but the exact number is unknown (perhaps as many as 25,000) because of taxonomic disputes. The number of orchid species equals about four times the number of mammal species, or more than twice the number of bird species. It also encompasses about 6–11% of all seed plants
Back To The Lodge
Time For A Short Drive To Sign Up For Golf!
The Lodge Golf course (The Challenge) is a challenge
Off To Manele Bay In Search Of Dinner
Finding some good vegetarian food was a challenge! A lacto-ovo-vegetarian is a vegetarian who does not eat beef, pork, poultry, fish, shellfish or animal flesh of any kind, but is willing to consume dairy and egg products
We Decided To Eat At A Local Establishment After Finding The Menu Vegetarian Hostile
Off to "downtown Lanai", a handful of restaurants (fast food establishments), two markets, a few shops and two churches!
Are you in the mood for delicious deli sandwiches? At Pele's Other Garden, you can relax in an inviting atmosphere while you dine on salads, sandwiches or pizza. During the day, we offer you a casual, friendly atmosphere to take in the food or sip on a hot cup of coffee. If you are in a hurry, call anytime, and your food will be waiting for you when you arrive.
At night the restaurant is transformed into an intimate Italian Bistro with an enticing selection of appetizers, organic salads, pastas, pizzas, desserts, and a cappuccino to finish off the evening.

Pete's place did an excellent job of satisfying our appetites and allowing us to visit the locals.
