Day 7 - A Day At Sea

So Saturday was another full day to relax and reflect on our trip of islands.  We purchased some pictures, watched a movie, read, relaxed and ate of course.  It was a great week and we knew that we would need all the relaxing we could to get us through our next day.
Sunday we arrived early in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  We were with the first groups to leave the ship due to our early flight.  We left to go to the airport at 7:30 a.m. and flew from Puerto Rico to Miami at 11:30 a.m.  We had a couple of hours to walk around the airport and we managed to catch the last five minutes of the gold medal men's hockey game.  Go Canada!

We left Miami and flew across the states to Las Vegas.  This was about two hours out of our way and we had a few hours to put in here.  The airport here was huge and we had to take a shuttle train to another terminal.  We were both getting pretty tired by now and we still had a ways to go.

We finally boarded and arrived in Saskatoon at 2:30 a.m.  By this time I was so confused with time changes and just knew that I was tired and it was extremely cold in Saskatoon... a -40 C cold.  So, we stood in line waiting for a taxi to get to our hotel with our spring jackets and summer pants on.  We settled into the hotel at 3:00 a.m.  Four hours later we both woke up and decided to keep moving.  We got our groceries at Costco, travelled home through Prince Albert where we had lunch and arrived at our house at supper time.  So after two days of travel we made it home and I can tell you home looked really good.

It was so cold all week and so I stayed inside where I did school work, baking, knitting, exercising, cleaning and laundry.  I did not step outside the door for over a week but then yesterday, on Ron's day, off we headed to Flin Flon.  The temperature is rising and we had a wonderful day skiing and breathing in the fresh air and not shivering. 

So there you have it.  I have totally caught you up to where I am and what I have done.  Oh, and I have been browsing cruise webpages....just looking.
