Last night I set the alarm to go off at 4:45 AM because Jay had a flight back to Vancouver via San Francisco scheduled for a 6:37 AM departure (I thought). Okay, so we were cutting it close (especially after we each had a shower) but that early in the morning means there is a reduction of traffic and we thought we’d be okay. We left the Moho at 5:45 (definitely too late for a 6:37 AM departure) but especially too late for an actual 6:27 AM departure! Ooops!
At first the agent at the check in counter thought he could easily find Jay another flight because it was so early in the morning. But after searching all possible connections and finding every flight fully (and over) booked, the best we could get was a new flight for the same time tomorrow morning. We even checked other airlines to see what they might have available but the problem is that it is March Break all over the place and most flights are overbooked!
Jay is still here with us in Desert Hot Springs and as much as he liked his visit, he wasn’t happy about extending his stay. It seems he has a very busy work schedule ahead of himself this week and the one-day delay has greatly increased his workload when he gets back to BC. Tomorrow morning we will be up early again however this time Rick and I will forgo our showers until we return back to the Moho. Jay has made the most of his one-day extension with many phone calls, some emailing and a little more R & R. This is a picture Rick took of Jay and I yesterday morning on our trip back to Coachella Valley from Idyllwild.
