We had to leave the ship by 9, and a very sweet couple offered to give us a lift into Fort Lauderdale as our plane only left at 4.30.   After pulling our suitcases to the carpark, we decided that they could just give us a lift to the airport, as we couldn't bear to have to pull them all around Fort Lauderdale.

We sat at the airport, dozed, played games, had lunch, and then about an hour before our flight was due to leave we decided to go through the security!!   Horror of horror, the line had grown so much at security, that we wondered if we would get through in time, having sat at the airport for the last 6 hours!!!    Anyway, we did, and it was so wonderful to see my beloved brother's smiling face at the gate in Atlanta as we walked through.

The airports are sooo huge in the US.   Once you have gone through security, you often get onto little trains that whizz you through the air to the terminal that you are leaving from.   It is all a bit Jetsons!!!

Hannah, my niece was arriving from Boston an hour after us, so it worked really well, as we just had a drink, and then her plane arrived.

It was great to see Deelee and meet her kids, and to reaquaint with Hannah and Alex.

Also great to get onto the computer, and catch up on the blog, and read our emails.   We are going shopping just now with Deelee, so our rest and recuperation starts and we are going to enjoy every moment!!!   Den, Alex, Hannah, Ash and I are going to a cabin for two days in South Carolina, while Deelee and her two stay home for school etc.     I believe there is rafting, and with me being so good at roller coasting now, it will be a cinch!!!

great to hear from you
Wow, again and wow again - what fun.

So enjoyed hearing of your adventures. And now you are in Atlanta and no doubt catching up and resting and washing clothes etc.

Just can't imagine how you planned your trip so well. You could write a book on 'dos' and don'ts
