Elevators and Waves   6 comments

Our room at the hotel we are staying at is on the 34th floor.  The view from this floor is pretty cool.  This morning the hotel was serving complimentary continental breakfast and coffee on the 2nd floor so we decided to head on down before starting the day’s adventures.We got into the elevator along with 4 other guests who were also headed down for the continental breakfast along with a hotel employee.  So, there were 7 of us in the elevator.  Did I mention we were on the 34th floor? 

The elevator starts going down and around the 27th floor there is a bit of a JERKING movement and the elevator comes to a STOP. On the 27th floor.  IT STOPPED.  We were stuck in the elevator on the 27TH FLOOR.


If you happen to get stuck on an elevator in a hotel, try to have a hotel employee on the elevator with you. He had connections! Needless to say, a half hour later we were freed from the Tower of Terror elevator!  We were given breakfast vouchers for the restaurant and had a full breakfast rather than continental breakfast.  SCORE!

We were finally off to find us some waves.  Here are some pictures from our wave hunt…


One of my favorite shots…


We finally found the big waves and the spectacular color! Aloha!

  1. Now I think I would have been a tad bit panicky!

    Your ocean pictures are gorgeous.

  2. Ok, I wouldn’t have been as calm as you. Your pictures are great – as always.

  3. Oh, I’m glad it was a score! Just caught up on your recent posts – thanks for the tour of Hawaii…it looks wonderful!

  4. OH yes! I figured your waves would put on way more beautiful show than the California Coast ones. Wonderful. Well if you have to get stuck in an elevator it’s good to get breakfast vouchers. You really did score and it’s such good bloggy material!!

  5. Wow! Gorgeous waves. Good for you to turn a potential disaster into blog fodder. It pays to take that camera everywhere. And you looked so calm! Hope you were able to enjoy the free breakfast 🙂

  6. That was exactly my thought too. You look awfully calm, probably hungry!
