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.
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.
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.
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 ;).
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?
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.
