The eagle has landed in Salt Lake. Here we are taking off from Oakland yesterday morning. Gail told me we had a good flight.....I slept most of the way.
The great Salt Lake is very impressive from the ground and the air.
We are staying at the Grand America. But first we had to get here. I rented a car at the airport and was immediately upgraded (at no extra charge) to a full-size Ford Explorer instead of a Rav 4. The problem began when the cute little attendant handed me the non-key for the keyless entry. I didn't know how to start the car.....not a clue. I was clueless to the keyless.
We got that figured out then faced the task of getting ourselves and Big Red, the SUV out of the airport. I can tell you that Gail and I know our way around the rental car parking lot like the back of our hand. We ended up at the exact same place where we started from. Good thing I purchased that extra tank of gas.
We finally got out of the parking lot and proceeded to the hotel. Gail was my co-pilot, the other half of the Lucy and Ethel team. At one point in time she had her phone in her hand looking at the map, and the other hand had the written directions from the hotel. We made it here without taking a single U-turn.
You walk in the hotel and are greeted by the fragrance from this LARGE, at least four feet across, bouquet. I thought I had just arrived in Hawaii.
We headed out last night to have dinner with our cousin Rick and his wife Gabi. Gail had my phone in one hand with a picture of the map, she had her phone in her other hand with the step by step directions. I now know what GPS stands for.......Gail's Palm System!
We made it there and back without an issue. Today we are off to visit some quilt shops, breakfast with our cousin, then pick up our credentials to get in the show and we are set for two more days of fun.
