We're On Our Way Home


Alarm went off at 6:45 and we groggily got up and got ready for the last round. Anne was up and ready with our morning porridge. It's probably a good thing we are leaving. Any more mornings with three course breakfasts and I won't be able to fit into anything! My dear husband on the other hand has not only eaten his fair share but most of mine on many an occasion. Oh how I envy his gene pool!

It was raining and quite blustery when we hugged Anne goodbye at the door and pulled out into the morning Galway traffic. We got a jump on the morning rush and once we were out of the city, it was a straight shot to Shannon airport.  The sun was shining brightly when we got to Shannon. Dropped the car off with a perfect score. Good thing we bought all that insurance. Shannon airport is quite small and very civilized.  It's never easy getting psyched to go to the airport but at least the smaller ones are a bit less stressful. Apparently,  the US TSA has teamed up the EU to make immigration better! We'll see.

We got our correct seats this time and the flight was fine.I have to say that going through US customs on the other side did seem more efficient. Even though there was another line to wait on in Ireland, it wasn't as crowded as what we usually have to go through in the US. Plus once you collect your bags you are out of there.

Landed at Logan and it was rainy and cool. It felt like we never left Ireland. Our driver picked us up and we were on our way home by 2pm.  So we have arrived home safe and sound. No injuries, didn't lose anything, although we had a couple of close calls. The bags are unpacked, the clothes are in the washer and it is finally time to relax. Thanks to Diane & Tim who kept the plants alive yet again.

As always, it is wonderful to see the world, but it also feels so good to come home. No plans for the next adventure but stay tuned.


Till next time....
