Up North

On May 18th we flew from St. Vincent to St. Lucia (a stone's throw away) with little hope of catching the next American Eagle plane to San Juan. We would not quite have made it if we had run through a transit lounge while someone moved our bags at the speed of light. But there was no transit lounge, and we had to recover our bags and take them through immigration and customs then outside the terminal to the American Eagle counter. There we were told that the plane had broken down in Canouan (a posh resort in the Grenadines) and we would go on that flight anyway. Later we were told that it wasn't going to be fixed before the afternoon flight, so we were booked on that flight and they bought us luch. Then we were told that the plane was fixed, and then not. By the time we actually left, we were on the afternoon flight that our agent had booked us on the previous October, but we had been shifted between planes 4 times and the other plane left about the same time we did. Everything else was fine and they boght us lunch, but there was something very Caribbean about it.

In any case we are back in Massachusetts (where it is cold and wet) have seen our grandkids and some of the Doctors and shopped in most of the stores like Building 19 and Ocean State for hyperbargains and we can settle down for a while. I'll try to catch up on the blogging.

Love to all, even American Eagle and Caribbean Star.
