AND WE DRESSED UP TO FLY!
Our Granddaughter, Tess, was flying in as an UNACCOMPANIED MINOR this afternoon. MC and I went to pick her up.
Steve, our Son, her Dad, warned us to give ourselves extra time. We would have to get a special pass to go directly to the gate to meet the plane.
Well....what an experience. I have never flown out of Atlanta's airport .....just have dropped off and picked up family and friends....
When we arrived, the parking was FULL!! We had to find the Shuttle Parking Lot. After two times around the entire place, MC finally found the correct road into the lot! We found it almost full, a row along the outside fence was the last area to find a space! We parked, locked up and found a line of people waiting for the Shuttle Bus.
We showed our ID and gave the man at the counter all the info on Tess' flight. We in turn received our Pass! This, with our ID, would allow us to continue through!!!!
Next the tram to C Terminal! After disembarking, up the escalator and then the forever run to the Gate. Of course the Gate was C42! We had less than 5 minutes .......We ran, made it and you guessed.....the plane was 45 minutes late! So back to the concessions and Starbucks for a quick cup of coffee and a muffin!! I was starved!
Tess was escorted off the plane by a very good looking guy and MC had to sign for her, show his ID and she was finally with us! Safe and Sound.
Her wish! A Steak and baked potato dinner! We had most of the day, wanted to avoid the traffic back to Griffin so up the road to Lenox and Prime for dinner was in order.
After a fabulous meal and lots of catching up we headed back home.
The Epiphany Suite is occupied tonight!!!
Steve is due any minute.
MC and I are so excited to have them here. We haven't seen them in a year.
