SHE IS HERE WAHOO April 4, 2016

Well some trips from Colorado can be a trip from hell. Frying from there to the islands get you an overnight at either Miami or Dallas. They got Dallas. Going through security even at 5:30 in the morning can mean standing in line. Not a hole lot of people traveling that early, but they just pull more inspectors off the line so it still takes an hour to get through. Then the plane is delayed. To the point that they will miss the flight to the Bahamas. Then you get a new plane. They roll it out from the hanger and put it in service. Oh, no radio in it. Just send a parade of techs to install and check out the radios. Finally off to Miami. They used to travel a lot. Along the travel they got to know about people who work and know the system. Before they leave Dallas they have arrangements made to get on the flight to the Bahamas. They do get to Miami and everyone scrambles off the plane and starts running to there next flight. Well, they get there and are greeted and shuttled off to there flight to the Bahamas.

They actually get in a few minutes early from the original schedule. Cool. They are tired and not happy with the being shuttled around for 9 hours. But, it all worked out for the best.

Today we ate breakfast on the boat and then off to the beach. That lasted till dinner time. Cool. A good day. The grandkid was very happy to spend today in the water.

Tomorrow a cold front is to pass through and bring strong winds and seas. That may cause us to take the water Taxies. That would be if it is to rough for us in the dinghy. Time will tell.

Sorry to hear about the difficulty in getting there, but very glad to hear the family made it safe and sound – well safe anyway. 🙂
Thanks for keeping us posted. Love, much fun and lots of R and R to all.
Bernie and Jane
