Thursday- Julie came to pick me up from my house so we could head down to Charleston to stay the night in the apartment. Since Sean somehow had my apartment keys, we had to wait for my landlord to get me my keys. That took longer than we had anticipated… Once we got into the apartment, we dropped our stuff off and ran to go eat. Then we ran around Charleston, feeding money into its economy more than we had anticipated. At least I don’t want to spend a lot of money anywhere else…! We went to bed around 11:30, only to wake up at 4am.
Friday- Maggie, Emily and Maggie’s dad came to pick us up from my apartment around 5:15am. Then we were on our way to the airport in Indiana. Maggie’s dad graciously paid for our breakfast and walked us into the airport. It was the quickest check-in/security check I’ve ever been through (all of maybe 4 times now). We got on a plane to Atlanta, short layover, got back on to Ft. Lauderdale. Once we arrived, we went to our hotel, which has beautiful views. Pictures to come when I get back! Dr. L is a wonderful woman, with so much energy that it encourages all of us who are weary travellers to be the same. The weight limit on the plan to the island is posing some issues but we’re working through it, I hope…
Saturday- Woke up pretty early, or so it seems. We’re headed to the island today! We’re being taken out via 8 passenger planes, so three groups. I think there is a camera guy documenting our trip too, so that’s interesting.
Limited contact with the outside world from here on out. Cannot wait to get back to share all the experiences and photos!
