|The weather in Miami is beautiful today.
We slept in late today. We had a 12:00 checkout time, and we took full advantage of it. Our flight isn't until 5:00. No breakfast was included at this hotel, so we decided that since we don't leave until 5:00 and arrive after 8:00, we would skip buying breakfast, and just eat a late lunch, early dinner at the airport.
We arrived at the airport and checked our bags. It was too early for our lunch/dinner so we just sat in the general waiting area outside of security for the G terminal. I completed the July 30 entry, and Jean read today's USA Today newspaper from the hotel. About 1:45 we went to Chili's Too! for our meal. We shared a chicken tortilla soup, and I had the ribs dinner and Jean had the Prime Rib Tacos. No dessert. Then after hitting the rest roomm to wash up from dinner (the ribs were messy & delicious), we went through TSA Precheck quickly, and then found our gate and camped out.
Our United flight went off about 15 minutes late. It was so hot and uncomfortable on the plane. They told us to open the vents while on the ground to help with the heat (Hey, turn up the A\C!) and it would be better once we were in the air (then get us in the air!).
The seats were uncomfortable. Jean was on my left and another woman was on my right, and neither one could get comfortable. Which made me uncomfortable with two squirming ladies next to me. No entertainment, and no food except beverage. Luckily, while at our gate, I spied a Krispy Kreme booth in the Miami airport. I bought three donuts. One for my dessert from our dinner (Jean didn't want ne), and two for the plane. They did make the trip a little better.
John met us at the Newark airport, we obtained our luggage and John took us home. Home at Last! Yeah!
