February 3-4, 2012. Home again.

We had to check out of the hotel by 3 PM, so I went for a swim and then we packed up and left our room, leaving our luggage at the hotel. Our flight was not until almost midnight! We walked around and saw the sights, found a pavilion on the beach and played Scrabble. McDonald's is near our hotel, so I took a photo of its banner--bet you won't see this in any other state!

We had a very nice dinner on an upper balcony overlooking the beach. Dianne had a combination plate of local favorites and loved them all.

We walked back to the hotel and changed into long pants and took a shuttle to the airport about 9:30. Our flight out was at 11:50 PM. While most of the passengers slept for the 7 hours, Dianne and I played Scrabble all the way to Phoenix. We said our goodbyes there, and Bill and I flew home, arriving at 4:00 PM on Saturday. What a long flight!

Once we were home we took turns being sick--he had the throwing up sick that Erika and Dianne both had 2 weeks previous, and I had sinus and chest congestion, like I had before the trip. Ah well, it was a wonderful trip, and I have a new favorite place to visit.
