Safely Back in the USA

Aloha Everyone,

The first thing I did upon reentering the USA was to call my Mother. It was wonderful to hear her cheerful and strong voice.  

Our usual practice is to purchase local SIM cards and load a sufficient amount to stay in touch with our family. Being on a cruise ship and visiting ports of call for only one day made this difficult.

J.J. and I took a shuttle bus to Fort Lauderdale Airport to catch a Southwest Airline flight to Nashville. The flight took nearly two hours. Seating is first come first serve. J.J. and I were the last passengers to board, thus we each occupied the middle seat apart from each other.

Nashville Airport is compact but clean and functional. We had a 2nd light snack before boarding our flight to LAX.

Southwest Airline’s advertising slogan, “In a world full of no, we’re plane full of yes.” On board complimentary service include non-alcoholic beverages, light snacks such as chips, cheese and crackers, peanuts and pretzels. I am happy to say that the three flight attendants worked tirelessly. They added humor to the announcements or sang the information. 

To make up for the “junk food” my body was subjected today, I ate a large garden salad at the airport hotel.

Aloha -- Cathi
