[QUOTE=smee57;1048460]Whew. Then carry on with your TR.
(They have been good matches, haven’t they?! The mens final is pretty predictable, but I’m not so sure about the womens.)[/QUOTE]
I was watching the Querry/Wawrinka match in the Regina airport. (why I was in the Regina airport will be revealed). Regina isn’t exactly a hotbed of tennis. They’re more into tractor-pulls, but I was gasping and oohiing and ahhing and everyone was looking at me like I was nuts.:laugh:
Now, to the report. I have pictures - many pictures!!! Well, for me at least - but my darn computer is acting up and I can’t get the link to work, so the pictures will have to wait until dh gets home and figures it out for me.
So - we left Wpg. at the very civilized time of 2 p.m. On this trip it was me, Neil (dh) and oldest daughter Sarah. Younger daughter Emily didn’t seem to mind staying at home to gaze adoringly at her boyfriend.:glare: Besides, she had to work.
It was a gorgeous, summer day and we had no problems flying out. We went Delta this time (if any of you want to remain my friends NEVER say the word “Delta” to me again! ALL WILL BE REVEALED.) This was the first time we ever travelled with just “carry-on”, and I was a bit nervous about being hauled off to jail for having a non-regulation cream rinse in my bag, which might exceed the regulation plastic bag size, but it turned out to be just fine. We landed in Orlando on time, which was 11 p.m., so we were tired, but got the rental car and headed to the condo we were staying in for 3 days. We had looked at this condo the last time we were in Orlando, with the idea of perhaps buying - so we wanted to see it again. It is a beautiful property, but we decided that we’re just not ready to take that step - but for any of you who are looking for inexpensive, extremely nice accomodations off-property, the name of it is Caribe Cove and you can rent a 2 bedroom condo (beautifully furnished & maintained) and you can trust me because I’m a snob about this stuff for something like $72. a night.
We collapsed into bed and fell right to sleep.
Oh - it’s always so nice to wake up in Florida! It had been raining the night before, but now the sun was shining and we decided to head to AK - I don’t know why we always start at AK but we do - after breakfast at an IHOP (culture shock at the size of the portions, as usual). Three of us shared 2 entrees and left half. On to the AK!
