Our direct flight from Baltimore to Miami was diverted to Charlston for "mechanical" reasons so we spent an hour there having the plane checked out, get a new flight plan and fill up with gas. Miami was a zoo as usual but we managed to take off only about 35 min late. The pilot did a fly by over Grace Bay and circled over the back side of the island to land with the prevailing winds. Beautiful site Grace Bay from 10,000 feet. All I could think about was a 26 story tower? Give me a break how stup........I mean how silly. Woke up to bright sunny day and took a beach walk where we ran into TCImike and his crew at boot camp. Catching up with them for drinks later. Spent all morning on a very sunny very windy grace bay. The ocean is whipped into a frenzy by hurricane Sandy and is quite rough by GB standards. But I took a swim none the less.....awesome! Lunch at Cabana Bar and now back to the beach....report back later....peace out!
