Here is an early morning sunrise form the Lodge. Today would be our last morning. Sob.
Here is a photo of Steve’s favorite breakfast pastry. Since we had to leave early to catch our flight to Orlando, I was able to nab one of these delicacies. They were as delicious as they looked!
Breakfast was the usual for me. My last good breakfast for a while, as unless I get up earlier and have breakfast with Steve I have to make it myself. And as I am lazy, I take the easy route and just have biscotti and coffee. Sometimes I try to be healthy and go for Cheerios with blueberries and almonds. When I am feeling exceptionally exotic I throw some coconut flakes on top. I may or may not do the hula before I sit down.
Steve and I finished breakfast, settled up the bill, and made our goodbyes, to Jane, Peter and Max. Next year we hope to travel to England and meet up with Jane and Peter. I think by now Steve is due for some castle touring, and royal watching. I will probably need to throw in some fishing on the Chalk Streams in England. Peter has a beat on the River Test, so this will surely be an excellent adventure. Steve will just have to test his skills there. Hardy Har Har!
Then we were off to the airport. As the Club was full we ended up sharing the ride to the airport with two delightful gentleman. They were friends from Cleveland who love to fish and duck hunt. They belong to several duck hunting clubs and once the season starts they make the rounds, traveling from club to club. I don’t hunt, but it sounded like fun going from club to club, meeting old friends and new. Of the two gentleman D, had fished many places and gave Steve some good advice regarding our next trip to Argentina. There is some place in Scandinavia where Steve wants to fish that the guy had been to also. Unfortunately it’s a place where you have to know certain people, and wait for openings due to death or decrepancy. Not a happy thought, but the truth. D has told his friend that when the time comes, he would like to buy the week of his friend. He has no idea what it will cost, hopefully all will work out.
Talking of things working out… Not! Although we got through security without me being frisked or detained all did not go smoothly. We decided to go upstairs to the lounge. It was quite pleasant when we were here in December. Unfortunately the Priority Pass Lounge, was not open for business! Steve gave this a thumbs down.Our plane was called and we made sure to stay between the cones on the way to board. The Silver Air employees do not look happy when you try to go outside the lines. This was our plane for most of the day. There were terrible storms over Florida. We had to land in West Palm Beach and sit for a few hours until the rain let up and we could proceed to Orlando. What was going to be a five hour wait in the airport for our next flight to Westchester airport turned into only an hour. There were many people on our flight who missed their connections. We finally made it home to Poughkeepsie and found that we had left spring far south. It was cold back home!
Sorry about the delay in finishing up the trip blog. Just think I still have to finish up Kenya and Argentina! Plus I have a short trip to Philadelphia to blog about also. Stay tuned!
