After a long trip, we’re back where we started and once again making our way home. Just like a boomerang, we will eventually come back.
We arrived early at the cruise ship harbor at Ft. Lauderdale and around 7:30 am, we were hauling our luggage and walking off the ship. That final “beep” as the security scans your sea pass card for the final time is always a little sad to hear.
We got through customs & immigration fairly smoothly and was interrogated quite thoroughly by the officer before we could enter into the good, old U.S.A. I guess, they’re always a little extra alert when they see a new passport (?). Well since we’ve renewed our passports, that has been my feeling. Every stamp sticks out like a sore thumb, I guess.
When he finally let us go, we got a taxi right away and went straight to the airport. A few hours later, we boarded the Spirit flight straight for Santo Domingo and eventually home.
