Checking in and security were a breeze but unfortunately we discovered our flight was delayed by 2 and a half hours. On the up side we each got a £10 voucher to get breakfast! The flight finally got underway but ended up being 3 hours late and we settled down for the 7 hour flight.
We landed in Boston with fantastic weather, sunny and 22 degrees and took the shuttle bus to get the rental car - a Ford Escape. No real issues driving through Boston, although we did drive through the EZ pass gate at the toll gate instead of taking a ticket. Mark will probably testify to this on his recent visit - once you commit to a lane it's very difficult to change and you will receive someone's wrath if you queue jump! The outcome of this error was to pay the full toll price which was $5.80!
As we got closer to Syracuse the weather got worse and became a torrential downpour. As well as getting dark we had all been awake for 24 hours and the effects of the caffeine were wearing off. I was struggling to concentrate on the road even at slower speeds so we stopped a few times along the way. We finally arrived at Eric and Janes at about 10.20pm and they made us a cup of tea and some toast.
Looking forward to seeing Emma tomorrow and seeing if we can get some bargains at the Mall!
I will put some photos on tomorrow - just too tired today!
