OFF WE GO—-Sunday, February 11, 2018

Waking at two thirty in the morning we gathered our two bags and headed out to Kimberly’s waiting car.  She graciously said she would take us to the airport, an hour away from us, and pick us up when we returned.

I was a nervous wreck.  I haven’t flown in many, many years.  Terry has, but not me.  I wasn’t afraid of flying, but all the requirements for the luggage.  Therefore, I checked the luggage requirement I’ll bet fifty times.  Packed the liquids in the proper way, allowed ourselves only TWO carry-ons, since we didn’t want to check luggage once we got there.

Airports are famous  for that ‘Hurry Up and Wait’ statement

Finally it was time!  Off we went, high above the clouds.

Clouds, of which were all the way the from here to Florida.

Still it was beautiful….we flew INTO the sunrise

No land to see, but beautiful sun coming up over the horizon

After a change over in Fort Worth-Dallas International Airport, with a two hour wait we were at the Fort Myers International Airport!

Terry’s sister and brother-in-law met us in the lobby…huge smiles on their faces and open arms.

Their condo is like many others in Marco Island; sitting against a canal in the back, with roads in the front.

We had arrived to SUMMER!

YAY!

That evening we ate supper alongside the beach, just a few blocks from their home.

 Gosh, it’s a lovely place.

Sun, sand, SUMMER, good people to spend time with, the water lapping on the shore, SUMMER—-did mention it was just like my favorite time of year?—SUMMER!

Who could ask for more.

From my world to your heart,

Linda

  1. Good for you. You sure deserve a coastal break.
    Flying above the clouds overland is annoying if you really want to see the landscapes
    way, way below.
    I always requested a window seat even flying over the oceans! You never know when
    you just might see an island.
    Enjoy Florida.
    Cheers

  2. How cool Linda…I didn’t know you were taking a vacation in Florida. And Fort Myers…one of my favorite places…we used to have a condo on Fort Myers Beach, not that far from Marco Island. Please soak up some sun for me….we haven’t had a chance to get back there for years. So happy for you. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!
