We woke early to dress, pack last minute things and have breakfast. Since Viktor asked if we would be at breakfast, we broke our habit of buffet breakfast and went to Waterside. Last breakfast is such a sad occasion. We still kept a light breakfast against Viktor’s recommendation since we were traveling. After our last meal, we said our goodbyes that I hope are really “see you laters.”
We returned to the cabin to grab our bags so Julia, our fantastic steward could prepare our cabin for the next guests. There was still some time so we made ourselves comfortable in the Cove for a bit. When it was time for our disembarkation, we were quickly off the ship and found our bags easily. It was a very painless disembarkation since we had already cleared customs yesterday in Key West.
It was easy to get a cab and we were soon at the airport. The line for security was huge but thanks to TSA precheck, we were through in mere minutes. The airport was busy as this is one of the busiest travel days of the year. We had about three hours to kill at the airport since we were there early. Sitting at the gate, I recognized a pharmacist I used to work with and went over to say hello. It was great catching up with her and it helped pass the time. The plane started boarding but after group 3, an announcement was made that boarding would stop. The passengers who boarded would be coming back off the plane. Apparently, we were delayed due to congestion in Philadelphia. We had heard the weather might be bad in the area as well so we were worried that might be another factor. Eventually, we boarded the plane over an hour late. After boarding, we did have to sit on the plane for a bit as well waiting to leave. Never fun, especially with a few unhappy passengers including a very upset baby who in turn made his parents quite unhappy as well. It wasn’t the type of in-flight entertainment I was hoping to enjoy. The flight was very turbulent and the seatbelt sign was lit almost the entire flight. We seemed close to Philadelphia but a look at the screen showed a very convoluted flight path. Finally, we landed safe and sound. It wasn’t too long to get our bags and a shuttle to our car. After arriving at our car, Chris noticed that although we had just enough range to get hoe we should stop and charge. The cold and sentry mode had drained a good chunk of the Tesla’s charge. No worries as there is a Supercharger at Wawa on our way home and we were both hungry so a hoagie sounded perfect. By the time we ate our sandwiches, the car had more than enough juice to get us home. That was a valuable lesson learned. Since we were gone for 8 days we will be sure to either turn off sentry mode in the future or park at a lot where we can plug in while we are gone.
