By the Grace of God, myself and my niece were able to to fly out of JFK Friday morning, in the middle of a Nor'easter. Never did I think that we would be flying out, but we did. Once we we were above the clouds, I felt much better about the flight. And four and a half hours we were in Aruba.
It is absoluetly beautiful here and the weather feels great! We jumped into the Caribbean Sea almost immediately after arriving at our resort and it felt warmer than I remember. I will tell you - nothing soothes my body and soul like a dip in that water!
We were mellow last night as we had hardly slept that night before because of the weather. We ate along Palm Beach at Palms at the Hyatt - we wanted to sit outside and enjoy the warmth. The meal was very good although the service got a bit slow once more tables came in.
Today we relaxed on the beach all day (tough, right?!). We are headed out to dinner soon, although we are not sure where we are heading yet. We will see where the night takes us.
I sent a big thank you into the cockpit when we were departing the planeyesterday afternoon. Our captain was heaven - sent in my book. he got us here safely!
I will post more about our trip as the week continues.
