What a great flight home! Reluctantly, we left the Marriott after the nicest breakfast poolside. None of us wanted to be out in the sun though because we were no longer wearing shorts and tank tops, but instead had switched to Idaho Winter Clothing for the journey home!
We arrived at the airport, got checked in, did some last minute "touristy" shopping and then boarded! Got the usual, wonderful First Class service from some great flight attendants and some wonderful meals as well. We arrived in Portland a few minutes early only to find our flight to Boise was delayed approximately 20 minutes, got to our gate and then boarded and back to Boise before 11:00 p.m.
Zookie was there to greet us right at the door meowing all the way! She has NOT let us out of her sight since we got home and is more talkative than ever. Also greeting us was the long, lost box from the movers with our Russian Black Lacquer Boxes! They are already in place on the shelves they used to reside upon!
We couldn't believe our eyes when we opened the shutters on Wednesday morning to find the beautiful winter wonderland in front of us and it had even resumed snowing! And yes, we are continually told by the "natives" here this is an exceptional winter for this area, hasn't snowed like this in four decades and on and on - yeah, right! Oh well, we are loving it here and it is really beautiful. It's great being back home and we are already planning our next trip to Yuma next month and looking forward to that as well.
