    Thanks everyone.

    Actually, I was not too concerned. The plane was handling fine with nothing out of line. The crew did an excellent job of managing the situation. In turn, most passengers remained calm. It got real quiet once the flight attendants had everyone take out and review the safety cards, and went over the brace for landing instructions. This is also a standard procedure precaution.

    Today has been a much better day. Perhaps the Ritz took pity on me, because we were upgraded to an oceanfront suite!

    Tonight we met up with Chalo at the Chalo Burger food truck.
    We have a mutual interest in barbecue and enjoyed exchanging stories and pictures.
    I have a competition BBQ team, and we brought him down some sauce and rub.

    We split the Salchipapa (You’ll have to Google it. It would take me way too long to explain it, and I’m still way too tired) and a cheeseburger. Food was excellent and the portions were huge!

    Off to bed. Hopefully I can rest up and I’ll share more later.

    I cannot imagine how tired you are.
    Food porn looks fabulous.

    I googled Salchipapa and it sounds delicious

    What are the amenities of the oceanfront suite?
