Arrival at the Moorings Yacht Club

We flew from Orlando to Puerto Rico on a big plane - one of the ones that has two seats on each side, then an aisle, and then like 5 or 6 seats across the middle. From the gate in Puerto Rico, after our layover, we took a little bus outside to the part of the airstrip where our little plane was - one with propellers! And only 2 seats on each side with one aisle. We had to climb stairs to get in, and the engine sounded like it was going to explode. :)
When we got to the yacht club we had a few hours to kill before the rest of our party arrived, so we went shopping at the little convenience store for essential liquids which had been taken from us at the Orlando airport when they refused to check our baggage.
Our boat, No Horizon, was a 51-footer with 5 cabins (4 off the main galley area, 1 V-berth up front which we used for luggage storage). The cabins each had queen beds and a little bathroom.
About 5 minutes after we got to the boat, the rest of everybody showed up! We got reaquainted and went to dinner at the yacht club, because we were all starving after hours of travel. Then we stayed up on the deck of the boat in the little seating area, hanging out and talking till late.
