The Turning Point

We had a 55 minute layover in Atlanta scheduled. Our flight from Norfolk was 15 minutes late leaving and once in the air was put in a holding pattern. Everyone was told to expect missed flights. We were freaked out with scary eyes from no sleep.

Just when we thought our luck had entirely run out, Duane checked our flight status using the inflight Internet. What, the St. Thomas flight was leaving out of T5? That must be wrong because we are arriving to gate T5. We checked it three times. Turns out the flight was not leaving without us because we had the plane!!! The Turning Point! The world started spinning in greased grooves.

Our flight arrived in St. Thomas only 30 minutes late and we made it to our beautiful boat, Sailor Dog, and found a home for all 175 pounds of our stuff. (Tammy quit laughing!)

We have had a great dinner, went provisioning at the marina market and are just sitting in the cockpit relaxing and listening to the music from the marina bar while we drink red wine. Not Bad for Day 1.
