Our daughter, son in law and grandson came by this morning at 9:00 AM to take us to the airport. Security at the airport was not as troublesome as I had expected. We only had a problem with a clock we were taking as a Christmas gift. We needed a battery in a hurry to prove it worked. Our flight left at 12:00 noon. I was able to sleep for most of the three hour flight. We arrived in Vancouver at 1:09 PM, went through US customs and at 3:30 PM continued on to Seattle. It was clear enough that we were able to see many of the little islands between Vancouver and Seattle. Saw Victoria in the distance. The Seattle airport was interesting – took us a minute to realize that we needed to take a train from the arrival gate to the luggage area.
Our son and daughter in law were waiting for us and it was so good to see them again. After having lived in a small city for the past 6 years, I have to admit that the Interstate gave me goosebumps! It did take me a few minutes to resume normal breathing after I realized that the speedometer was showing the speed of the car in miles not kilometers.
So far today I feel no worse than I normally do. My legs are cramping and I have some flank pain but I have had this level of pain at home.
Oh yes, a week ago my darling grandson said, Nana, you will be very sad if you go to Seattle for so many days. I asked him why he thought I would be sad. He said, Nana, you will be sad because you will miss me so much! Out of the mouth of babes!
