Bahamas and Turks and Caicos 2012

by on Jan.29, 2012, under Flying

On Jan­u­ary 17, Joyce and I left Hilton Head a day ear­li­er than planned due to weath­er mov­ing into our depar­ture point. We orig­i­nal­ly planned to fly to Fort Laud­erdale, refu­el and fly on to Cat Island in the Bahamas. We instead would spend the after­noon with our Flori­da fam­i­ly and leave the next morn­ing to start our four day stay at the Fer­nan­dez Beach resort before fly­ing to the Turks and Caicos. We had lunch and then met our daugh­ter Jen­nifer to pick up our grand daugh­ter Alexan­dra from school. That evening Mike our son-in-law joined us for din­ner at a fund rais­er for Alexan­dra’s school. One thir­ty AM food poi­son­ing struck and I was afraid I would die and then afraid I would­n’t. The next morn­ing a pre-flight of the pilot indi­cat­ed we were not going to fly so I slept until two in the after­noon. Jen­nifer pre­pared home made soup, which stayed down and I start­ed to regain strength, but still did­n’t meet pilot pre-flight require­ments on Thurs­day morn­ing so we pushed back our depar­ture to Fri­day. We com­mu­ni­cat­ed with Fer­nan­dez Bay Resort, who was very under­stand­ing and did not charge us for the delay. Fri­day we were ready to go and it was a great day to fly.
