From Seattle, Vieques is a journey. Since we had a 12 hour commute, we took the red eye so we could sleep on the way to our destination and not lose a day of sun and fun in paradise. I am a great airplane sleeper, but this time I hardly slept a wink!
Instead of sleeping, I took pictures; had an excellent quiche and super juicy, sweet, fresh fruit for breakfast (one of the best breakfasts ever… it’s strange that I am saying that about airplane food, but it was delicious!); watched a movie; and studied for my upcoming NY/NJ True Color Expert™ training with Maria Killam.
Not only was my breakfast delicious, our flight attendant was pure joy. Everyone in our section knew his name. By the end of the flight he knew everyone’s story and we knew his. He was so delightful that Jon wrote a long impressive letter to American Airlines for him. Jon is an Executive Platinum customer, which our flight attendant told us means that a letter from Jon will hold some clout over a letter from me😉.
We landed in Puerto Rico and then took a little plane to the island of Vieques.
Jon and I checked in, got a drink and caught a golf cart ride to our room. I took pictures of our room before we unpacked (I will share them soon); then we changed into our bathing suits and had a bite to eat, poolside, before heading to the beach.
We played in the ocean until the sun set. I was so lost in picture taking that I didn’t notice Jon was sleeping like a baby on the lounge chair behind me.
There is still more to come from Vieques… stay tuned!
