Seven Days and Six Nights Part One-Arrival

AD-FREE BLOG


Last Christmas, Joe's present to Vickie was tickets to Costa Rica for February.

 His under cover work with the Chicago Police Department interfered, 
and so did the delay on Vickie's shop remodel. 
 Finally, this June they traded the tickets in for 
Seven days and six nights on their own island. 
(Seems, Joe's got connections!)

After a long day of traveling by limo, plane, rickety bus, motorboat, they get dropped off on the beach of their own island get-away. It's been a long day.

Joe: What do you have in here, I thought we decided to travel light?

Vickie: Well Joe, even bikini's have accessories. Looks like everything we need is here except for a roof, a shower, air-conditioning???

Joe: Ha! We do have everything, a hammock...you, me,

Vickie: Gorgeous or not, I'm not sleeping on the beach. And I really need a shower. (What did I get myself into?)

Vickie: I'm sorry Joe, I'm just dehydrated, we've been traveling since 4 AM, I'm really bushed. Please tell me, where are we staying?

Vickie: "Up Where??? I wish I had brought boots, instead of these heels."

Joe: "Well you can't go barefoot, snakes and stuff. It's just up that hill, about 250 feet up. The view should be spectacular."

Vickie puts on a brave face: "Okay, Joe. You're the ex-marine, lead on through jungle...
