Trip Report 4/5-4/9

We arrived on April 5, after being delayed 2 days due to the tornadoes in Dallas. On the 2nd our plane kept circling the airport

like 5-6 times, i was getting dizzy...anyway we could not land and ended up being taken to Tulsa Oaklahoma, where we were allowed to get off the plane and stayed 4 hrs. I got a message our connecting flight to Tampa had been cancelled. We finally arrived

in Dallas to a huge mess, tons of flights cancelled, huge lines

to rebook. We finally got a reservation but not until thurs the 5th.

We were told all hotels were booked within a 20 mi radius, i did

call a couple. So we ended up spending the nite in the airport on

cotts & blankets given out by them...thank goodness. NOT a fun

nite...NOT much sleep. We were able to get a hotel that next nite

but guess what? our luggage had gone on to Tampa.....no clean clothes, makeup, etc. But the next day we flew out, they had even

given us 1st class seats....Wow was that nice...1st time. The rest

of the vacation was wonderful.

Stayed at the Grand Plaza for the 3rd time, love the hotel, Bongos, the cabanas and the room/view. Dawn at the desk and Antonio bell hop were especially helpful. We ate at Spinners, Mad Fish and Skidders....all VERY good. Drove up to Clearwater....way to busy

for us but fun to see all the little towns along the way. We love

St. Pete Beach, was a little disappointed we didn't get to Ft. Desoto

this time, that beach is the BEST. Thanks to all who helped me plan our trip.
