Back at the ranch

We landed early this morning, around 630AM local time. While it is good to be home and I loved the enthusiastic pet greeting, the temperature left a little to be desired…

And has we are heading towards the shortest day of the year, the darkness is a bit much. However, we are headed in the right direction as my mom would say.

I did do the dolphin swim yesterday morning. I would do it again in a heartbeat. It was one of the most incredible experiences in my life. At the one point, the dolphins were following me instead of minding their trainer. We all got a little reprimand for that since they are supposed to be learning manners 😉 There were only two other people scheduled at the same time so we had six dolphins between us. My mom would have loved it. It was beyond magical. At the end, we could put on masks and dive with the dolphins, which I did! That was even more breathtaking. If you can Scuba, you can go with the dolphins for an open water dive. I think that’s going on my list of things to do.

I was so concerned that I not miss the dolphin swim that I showed up 45 minutes early… I was leaving nothing to chance!

I spent the last couple of hours before heading for the airport sitting on a terrace above the beach so I could see everywhere. And then it was time to head for the airport. I am glad I left earlier than I thought I would need to because it turns out I needed the extra time. Let’s just say I had my fair share of delays between returning the car, checking in and getting through security. This was my ride home.

Still my favorite kind of plane…


It was a good flight. I slept pretty well, partly because I didn’t let myself start watching movies and I bored myself to sleep by creating a root cause analysis PowerPoint which is just about as exciting as it sounds! Getting home, I fed and hugged the zoo and then started working. I am pretty tired and I know I need to go grocery shopping but I am really not interested. I’ve been cold too, I think my blood must have really thinned out in a week!
