Airport Hell

Liat Airlines is awful. Just awful. The flight to Grenada is delayed, so we will be a bit late for our St Vincent connector, which they refuse to hold for us. We are told that there is no way out.

So we are getting a flight to Barbados then to Antigua, to be able to a place where there is a reasonable airport w reasonable carriers. From there we can get to San Juan tomorrow morning.

From there, we get home on Thursday, hopefully before midnight because I'm supposed to be on TV at 9am Friday morning.

Soul food Grenada

This is not throw up. It was our lunch yesterday at a wonderful local restaurant. I had pumpkin, callaloo (their version of spinach), and a goat curry. It was brilliant, included a Carib beer, and cost me a whopping 10$.

Always eat where the locals eat!!

This is what southern cuisine used to be, before it became all about deep frying everything from chicken to Snickers to Oreos. Southern food used to include things like collards, squash, homemade breads. But how many do you think would even know what the food in this pic even is, today?

Do you wonder why people in the southeastern US -- where I grew up -- have such a problem with their weight and health? It's not because of their traditional habits and foods, but precisely because of the turn from those traditions.

Looking home

This pic (below) is from the Dodgy Dock restaurant at the resort. It has decent food, but this is our last morning here!! Woot!!

Hurricane Earl turned north, Fiona was tailgating Earl and because of thy has become diffuse and disorganized.

Today: puddle jump from Grenada to San Juan (flight time = 3 hours); we stay in the airport for 4 hours, then fly to Atlanta (arrive around 10:00pm); then home to pgh at midnight.

Long travel day.

Chocolate and rum

No flights northbound today. We are stuck here until tomorrow.

So, to compensate for this delay, we are going to take a tour of the island, including a rum factory and a chocolate making plant.

We were told that seeing the rum plant may be a bit like watching sausage being made (you'll never eat another sausage again!). Have a hard time believing that ;).

Could be worse

500 people were stranded in the San Juan Airport last night as a result of hurricane Earl. Im really glad we did not make it out of here (away from this cushy resort with its soft beds and handy rum drinks by the True Blue bay) last night. Sleeping in an airport is awful.

I'm guessing that we will get out of Grenada this morning and then, because of the backlog up in San Juan, we'll get grounded there for tonight.

That said, if we do get home tonight, it will be a first class, regulation miracle. Do I hear an Amen?

Stuck in Grenada

This is the airport in Grenada. We were just "infarmed dat dey don't fly no plane to deh nort today. Due to deh hurracane, you know."

So we are here until the storm clears out.

Heading home

Zero clouds, negligible winds. So, we are motoring from Sandy Island back to the southern tip of Grenada. Auto-Pilot rules!!

Got up at 5:30, slipped off the mooring ball, started motoring South West, and we be back in port by 2:00. We will check back in, pack out things and prepare to fly home tomorrow morning.
