Flying High

We are here in Daytona after a quick 2 1/2 hour flight from Albany to Orlando. The world sure looks different from 40,000 feet above. Southwest Airlines arrived 25 minutes early, exclaiming that if we fly with them again and they are late, remember this day and it will all even out. Of course I'm sure our speedy trip had nothing to do with the fact that there were only 65 passengers with very little luggage on board this 737 jet. Ha!

What a shock we had when we walked outside and it was 90 degrees and humid (Yippee...I'm trading in my driving gloves for diving gloves!). We had to rent a car to travel I-4 east to Daytona, and this part of the trip is more dangerous than flying. Luckily traffic wasn't too bad this time.

Today we have been basking in the sun and heat with near record high temperatures. The spare parts shopping list for the boat is almost complete already, and we have started on my mother's 'to-do' list. The day wouldn't have been complete without a swim in Mom's pool. The water temp. is about 78 degrees, very refreshing, but of course we northerners are more used to the cool lake waters, so it's not so bad.

Dave is starting to get emails from sailing club members regarding sunfish sailing, so we will soon be back into the swing of things as soon as we reach Hope Town. Meanwhile, at least for the next few days, we will enjoy the hot sunny weather and save the rest of our chores for cooler temps later this week.
