... the same Holiday Inn we were in the previous night. We got to know some of the passengers and we all commiserated over a couple of cold ones.
Friday, Dec. 19 - Up 6:00 a.m. The airlines found a charter flight for all of us and we were onboard by 9:30 a.m. It was a fast flight across the gulf stream and as the plane landed safely at Treasure Cay airport everyone broke into applause.
