It is so much fun to leave the New York Metropolitan area out of LaGuardia airport. It may be a zoo, and a very old airport, but the views over Manhattan can’t be beat! The rectangular dark area is Central Park. The very bright street is …..Broadway!
We are flying from LaGuardia to Houston, where we will spend the night. Maybe I should wait until tomorrow for you to find out where we are going. Yes, I think I shall.
Warm salted nuts, and ice water for me. Steve got his glass of white wine. He does like to drink on flights. I don’t as I normally run dehydrated, and don’t want to aggravate that. There were two choices for our entree, and they ran out of the first, some kind of salad, so I had the macaroni and cheese with grilled chicken. The chicken looks like meat loaf, but it was grilled. I don’t like spicy food, so the macaroni was a thumbs down 👎🏻 for me. The dessert was a turtle cheesecake, caramel and chocolate. Steve says that was fennel on the salad. We landed early in Houston, I got messed up on the time change. I thought we were going to land an hour earlier than we did. So I didn’t like that last hour. They had no entertainment in the seat backs, so I just read. I could have used my iPad and watched a movie, but then I would have had to bother Steve for it in the backpack that he had in the upper compartment. There was a lot of turbulence on the flight so the buckle your seat belt sign was on a lot. Yesterday there were a lot of twitter postings around bad turbulence with stuff strewn all over the cabins, so I think it was a good idea to keep our rears in our seats. I always keep my lap belt, low and tight while we fly unless I am getting up to use the facilities. There were a lot of business people in our first class section of the plane. I thought I saw red insteps on this guy’s shoes on the left. I was racing to catch up to him, to snap a picture of them. It was the first time I had seen a guy wearing Christian Louboutin shoes. Alas, he went to fast for me, and then entered the men’s room. A solid no go for me! We were going to stay at the Marriott at the airport. It took us awhile to figure out how to get there. Of course I didn’t listen to Steve, who actually paid attention to the directions we were given. We finally did find the tram and found the hotel. We were smart and had our luggage checked through to our next destination at the LaGuardia check in desk for United. I really didn’t want to lug our luggage (nice alliteration!) around the airport to the hotel, and back to the airport.
This was a particularly bad picture of Steve, he was tired, and secretly semi annoyed that I didn’t listen. However, all the pictures I took of him on the tram were this bad. Sometimes you have to suck it up and pretend to be happy so you look good for the blog. I would think he would know by now that #THEBLOGISTHEMOSTIMPORTANTTHINGINTHEWORLDSOSUCKITUPBUTTERCUP!
It was easy to follow directions to the room. The desk clerk said to go up to floor two and go down the corridor with the yellow lights. Room 2015 it was. Not a bad room. Let’s hope the a/c works, and we sleep well.
Where do you think we are going?
Are you team carry on only or do you schlep luggage?
Did you buy your Valentine a card last minute, or are you team buy ahead and then leave it at home on the kitchen island?
