Going Home #353

Our short trip to Florida is now over and we are waiting at the departure gate for the flight from New York to Dublin as I write. We arrive to freezing weather at 05:00 after a week of temperatures in the low twenties. It was lovely seeing my daughters Claire and Vicki again, even if only for a few days. We had some good laughs, ate well, and drank (more than) a few glasses of wine. Our base was West Palm Beach, but we also traveled to Miami, Orlando, and a Cape Canaveral. WPB is a very nice city - especially the centre: City Place. I might never be back there again, but I'll certainly have fond memories of WPB.

Singing in the rain!
America for me is a wonderful country and I have always loved coming here. The exchange rate between the dollar and the euro does not make it an ideal destination financially, in addition I found a lot of things expensive, especially the booze. But everywhere people were so friendly, and my only complaint about the trip was the number of mosquito bites I got. I do hope to get back to America again before the end of the year. God Bless America (and all other countries too!).
