On our way~!

Was greeted by a beautiful Orange sunrise this morning, getting up early to catch our flight to Curacao. Took some razzle dazzle, but finally made it on to a flight to Curacao after several schedule changes. Love that flight…. 16 minutes from wheels up to touchdown~! They should all be like that except for the gouging we took leaving the island. Found out about $140.00 worth of taxes that had to be paid on the “fully paid” rental car….. and wound up having to shell out $ 360.00 for our baggage to go back to Curacao. (Tickets for us were only $86.00… guess I should have just bought seats for our luggage)  Funny, it was only $40.00 going to Bonaire for the same set of luggage…… Sure hope I don’t get stuck with that again going to St. Croix~! That hurts~! Anyhow, settled in here on Curacao [again] into our hotel. Took a shafting on that too, not getting the room I was supposed to get – but I won’t bore you with the details… you can read about it on Trip Advisor if you want  😉      Settled down and relaxed in our room now – gonna hit the hay early~ish – have to be up by 5:00 to get back to the airport. Tomorrow is going to be a really long day for us….. including a 5+ hour layover over in Miami and not landing in St. Croix until 9:05, then still have to get a car and drive across the island (in the dark) to find our next place…… yessir – gonna be a long day. Doubt if I get anything put up tomorrow – but we’ll see.

Good night ya’ll~~

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
