Leaving tomorrow for 9 days in Florida and St Thomas, thanks to tickets sent by son Greg and sister Marian. So looking forward to seeing sun and feeling warm. Will be adding to this post as I go thanks to WordPress’ iPad and iPhone apps. So keep checking!
Arrived safe and sound after a very strange flight. The plane wasn’t half full so I had lots of room, but about two thirds into the flight, the Captain announced that we were being rerouted due to a military operation. WHAT? Added 45 minutes to the flight. Customs was interesting, slow and disorganized, but I got through with a smile.
Lovely to see Greg, Sofia and sweet Carmen. They all think it’s pleasant, I think it’s hot. They have a lovely house on a canal, and I feel quite tropical. Out to Target!!!! today and maybe Chico’s. I am in heaven.
So, I can’t upload pictures on my iPad, but Chico’s and Target were fab. Spent way too
much. Exhausted tonight, sitting in a puddle from the humidity and what I call heat. Going outside, Mosquitos or no Mosquitos. Got. To. Get. Some. Air.
Now that I’m home and have access to my computer, I can finish this entry!
My sweet daughter-in-law is convinced that air conditioning makes her sick. So, while I was there, no air. No cold air, no circulating air, no open windows if it was windy – no air. Hard on this hot-flashing Gramma. But, luckily, I was on the 3rd floor all by myself, and I can tell you that every window was wide open. So I was able to sleep. Good thing Greg likes the heat!
Went to St Thomas in the USVI on Monday to visit my sister, Marian who does believe in air conditioning. However, it was
breezy enough that all we had to do was open the windows and the sliding glass door to the deck. The weather was cooler in general, and we lazed around reading and doing computer stuff. She just got internet access which was lucky for me as I would have gone through withdrawal without it! Actually, you can walk up to the office where they have internet access for whoever needs it, but it is so much nicer to stay in PJ’s while you answer email!
We took several drives around the island and saw some spectacular scenery. Took some wrong turns and wound up in some interesting places, but it was all an adventure. I will say that the roads are, by and large, in atrocious shape. I felt beaten up each time we returned home! Here are some pics – Magen’s Bay was my favorite.
Left Mimi’s on Wednesday night to go back to Ft Lauderdale, and then took an early flight on thursday back to Paris. Being in the sun and the warm was great, but it’s good to be home!
