So happy to be here and so happy to report on a fantastic travel day. We left RDU for PHL at 6:10am; no issues or delays and our PHL to SXM flight took off on time. We were scheduled to land at 1:35 but actually walked off the plane in SXM at 1:30. We cleared customs, made a bathroom stop, got a taxi,, dealt with unexpected road closings, ended up ditching the taxi to walk and still made it to Marigot by 2pm to wait for the 2:15pm ferry to Blowing Point. Breezed through customs at Blowing Point, got the taxi ($26+tip) to Shoal Bay Villas and were unpacking in our room at 3:15. Changed, went to Gwen's (had a blast but met no other TA folks, dang!) went to Madeariman's for more music (and great pizza) then home to SBV for a balcony goodnight. How wonderful to be ending the day here!
