Back in Dominica

Well, we made it back to Dominica for our last trip to the island. It was very strange to think that it would be our last trip here - for now anyway. And I only say that because I've learned when you say things like never coming back, life seems to challenge you.

The trip was rather uneventful. We flew American out of O'Hare, stayed the night in San Juan, and then continued on to Dom via Seaborne. I have to say, Seaborne provided a much better experience than alternate airlines we've encountered. Everything was on time for the most part, which is really all you can ask for.

Our overnight in San Juan was too short. Is it such a lovely island, and we would both like to return and spend some more time exploring.

We got on the plane in Chicago in freezing temperatures and snow, to get off the plane welcomed by sunny skies and 85 degrees. Not too bad.

So then it was off to Dom. We enjoyed our last 'American territory' meal, and made our way.

These photos make Dominica look very eerie to fly into. But it's really not that bad.

Landing in the mid afternoon allowed us to enjoy the beautiful ride on the way home from the airport. The weather here has gotten much more mild than from when we left. We haven't even been running fans during the day. Crazy!

Matt started classes again on Monday. I think he was pretty ready to get back into a routine and get going on the semester. This semester has a bit of a different schedule, so that will take some getting used to, but I'm sure he will figure it out.

Now, the countdown is on! Next month, my mom will be visiting, and then the semester is over in April. I'm sure it will go come and go so quickly. But for now, it's just enjoying our views and relishing our time here on the island!
