St. John Vacation – Epilogue

We’re back in Asheville! Our Charlotte to Asheville flight was delayed two hours, one of our bags didn’t show (it was delivered this morning), and the other bag had two broken bottles of Valley Doll Hot Sauce (thankfully the plastic bag we packed them in held most of the leak). Other than that, our return to reality was an uneventful exciting trip…why exciting? Because the first leg was on a 10 passenger (9 plus the pilot) Cape Air Cessna 402 from St. Thomas to Puerto Rico. Yee ha! That’s the smallest plane I’ve been on since the 4-seater that Bob Shaw piloted from Harrisburg to New Castle. Valerie’s never been on a plane that small. It was just a regular-day-at-work for Brian, our pilot, but was a bit of a rush for us and a great way to see Puerto Rico up close.

We had a huge beautiful rainbow over Coral Bay on our last evening and got to recreate our picture from seven years ago – we haven’t aged a bit. We tried to lunch on some local fare (mutton and oxtail) at the airport restaurant but they were sold out and only had chicken. Darn, I think. We picked Serena up from Happy Tails this morning and she’s recovering from her “vacation” by sleeping soundly and dreaming on the couch.

Ahhhh, what a fantastic vacation! We won’t wait 31 months to do this again!
