Our route took us from Oakland to Nashville for a plane change,
so we had a chance to eat lunch at a deli in the terminal. One of the goofier
sights was this basket of mini tabasco bottles. I suppose some folks might
like tabasco on their sandwiches; I'll wait until it's time for eggses...
We arrived in West Palm Beach without incident, where the weather
was nice and balmy . Good thing we packed light clothes! We drove a mile
or so over to the Marriot and checked into a fine room on the fourth floor,
featuring a sweeping view back to the airport...nothing like watching the
planes come and go all night! Good thing we brought tapestries to cover
the view! :-)
Ting took a short rest while I decorated the room, setting out the
traveling circus and hanging up our festive tapestries to cover the ugly
color combinations (or rather the "non-combinations" as nothing matched
in the room). Whoever decorated those rooms should be paddled hard. Striped
curtains with a flower-patterned bed spread and a pineapple-patterned couch...ooooh!
my eyes were hurtin till we turned down the lights. Ahhh! Now it looks
and feels much more like home!
