Expostulation

Well, That Was Interesting

Right, then, up at Oh-Dark-Hundred, a wee bit of checking the 'Net (primarily for weather, despite having the Fabulous Weather Channel on hotel TV), shower, shave, dress, out the door and off to the airport. Still drove around the loop. Gah. I remember Orlando's airport when it was SMALL, dammit! Anyway, got into the rental car drop off and dropped off, got my ticket, and (surprise, surprise, surprise) easily through the security inspection.

Easily. WTF? Previous times, one or both bags (camera bag, chock full of photography equipment; roller carry on with clothing, computer, and accessories) required being opened and inspected due to the plethora of wires and junk inside. Not this time. Cruizin'...

Anyway, into Chelan and Campbell's Resort by 18:10, into the room by 20 after, made a few photos... oh, did I mention? No, I didn't. Got back to my seat on Alaska Air Flight 9 after that all very boring, move along thing, to find Dredd Phredd Otter happily finishing up my snacks. The Sittle Lhit. I expect he'll have something to say about the trip, probably borrowing mini_fred's place, but I don't know. Not sure where he's at just now, wasn't here when I got back from dinner. There is a lake out there, though.

Anyway, took a few photos on the balcony of my room, Dredd & I watching sunset and dusk, and Dredd checking out the two bottles of wine, an '03 merlot and an '02 chardonnay, which are mine courtesy of the Flight Crew of Alaska Air Flight 9. I do not know what that wine is for, it was all too boring.

Then I went and ate dinner at the Second Floor Pub & Veranda. Dead Guy Ale. Garden salad with a honey somewhat thicker than vinegrette dressing, 8 oz tri-top Steak Modena on a bed of sauteed mushrooms in a balalmic demi glaze and onion straws, and a baked potato. Yum. Out on the veranda in weather cool enough that I half-zipped my vest but didn't feel obligated to roll down my sleeves.

I love this place!

But now, even though I know without a doubt that I'm in singingnettle, ihgreenman, miz_hatbox, scorched_mirth, wedschilde, and a host of other's time zone, my body says it's way late. I go bed now.
