    Lauderdale/Hollywood airport is the PITS.
    however, terminal 1 gates A and B are way better than the other terminal where JB gates are.

    snoozing just a bit here at the gate, will try to get back on tonight

    Day 1 Wed May 1

    May 1 – 15

    Today was an exceptionally long day and with an achy toe, it was a difficult day.

    Ft Lauderdale/Hollywood airport is not only undersized for the amount of users, it is dirty.
    We have had to use FLL during our last couple of flights to AUA as Orlando is no longer a non stop option for SWA.

    Our flight was on time and smooth. I watched the end of Star is Born and Crazy Rich Asians on my ipad using the SWA app. (free $)

    Immigration lines were non existant.
    Paul was detained at the “Happy Flow” while I breezed right thru.
    After 5 minutes of the employee doing her hardest to get him thru, it would not work.
    Finally, he had to go see the man in the booth………who was not too happy and it was kind of a cluster mess Apparently I transposed a # of his passport when I did the immigration thing online.
    Finally, the immigration employee motioned Paul thru, the luggage was waiting and we were in the shuttle to Tropic office near Flora.

    We stopped at LaCabana to give a friend some things that she cannot get here in Aruba and then we checked into Sunset Studios (near windsurfing area) and directly across the street from the rusted wreck that sits in the shallows.

    After a quick dip in the pool, showers and a nap we headed off to Hung Paradise and then back here for another swim and now bed!

    I think tomorrow is a lay low day…….maybe the beach late in the day……..probably just remaining poolside here.

    I love the location of Sunset Studios. Maybe my next husband will be more open to it...LOL. I'm joking, of course. Do you ever snorkel or explore the water near the rusted wreck? It looks rocky there but I assume there would be interesting sea life?
