I am writing this from the Admirals Lounge at Logan Airport, waiting for the flight which will take me to Miami....4 hours; where I will change to a flight to Santiago....eight and a half hours;, and from Santiago another fight to Punta Arenas, four and a half hours; and then a 6-hour drive to the hotel in this photograph.  A loooong trip but as you can see from the picture, a worthy destination!  It was a little iffy, this departure, because of the storm that hit New England last night; but everything seems to be moving now, flights on time, and even now and then a bit of sun appears from behind the clouds.

This was a trip Martin always wanted to make so I am doing it in his memory and in hopes that he is looking down and smiling.

Alfie and Lulu are (I hope happily) ensconced at the kennel. I couldn't have a house-sitter because the donstairs interior is being painted and no matter how well-behaved the animals are (ha) being near an open paint can or a freshly-painted wall...not a good idea.

Another photo, almost an advertisement, of the clam chowder at Legal Seafoods at the airport. A good start to a trip!
