The Trip to Fort Lauderdale
Monday, January 12 and Tuesday, January 13
After being delivered to Skyline Shuttles at the Radisson Hotel in Duluth by nice neighbor Terry Ribaudo, the trip to Minneapolis Monday was snowy and slippery, and an hour behind schedule. Glad we weren't driving tho! We spent a short but pleasant night at Jill and Corey's, then were back at the airport at 4:30 am. Flights to Atlanta then Fort Lauderdale were sunny, clear and without incident. Met the girlfriend of the staff captain (second in charge) on the Tahitian princess) on the flight. We'll meet up again tomorrow no doubt. Weather in FL is windy, rainy, but tropical and warm. -20 degrees (Mpls)+80 degrees (Ft. L.) =100 degrees difference from 4:30 this am to 4:30 pm. Yikes! Tommorrow we board our ship!!!
