Debt free empty nesters...ready to stretch our wings. Life is good and we plan on making it even better. This blog is mostly about our trips to Vieques Puerto Rico, with a few odds and ends thrown in about our life after the mortgage.

Piecemeal baggage claim....

Lorrie and I get to the airport about 4:50. The Cape Air plane should be landing within the next 20 mins or so. We just sit in the Jeep watching for the plane to come in. When we finally see it we both head downstairs to claim our baggage. Doesn't take long and Lorrie see's the first piece. Alright...I"m thinking..one more bag and we can finally get this show started. The bag Lorrie has is the one with all our snorkel gear in it. I can't wait to get the other bag so I can get out of these blue-jeans and this knit shirt.  Doesn't take long for all the bags to come in...but no more for us?

Oh no....you've got to be kidding me.

I go back to the Cape Air counter and ask the guy about our "other" bag. He calls SJU and tells me it's coming over on the 7:40 flight. Ah...jeez..this kinda sucks. We've got blue-jeans on and 3 hours to burn. We decide to head to Esperanza and grab a bite to eat at Duffy's. The food was great. The service was great. Our waitress was working her fanny off now, I'm here to tell ya. We paid for the meal and as we were walking back to the Jeep my phone rang. It was the guy from Cape Air and he told me our luggage was coming on the 7:40 flight for sure. So..we head back to the airport...again.

When we get to the airport our bag is waiting for us. With our luggage finally in hand we head back to Los Frutales or should I say "Cartoon Network". More to come on that.

Hasta Manana


  1. Oh my! Sounds like another rough start. The cliffhanger will certainly keep me reading. Can't wait to hear the full report. Drink a Medalla or 2 for us, will you?

  2. Actually we bought a case of Coronas and a bottle of Cutty Sark. Ate fresh snapper last night, caught by my very own hands. We'll toast one to you at the beach this A.M. Brandi.
