Our plane to Chicago left at 8:25am. We had a three-hour wait until our United flight to Syracuse, arriving at 4:47pm. We made it home shortly after 8:00pm. Everything went smoothly, but it was not an enjoyable experience since Liam was quite uncomfortable the whole time. Kelly and her husband took him to Emergency at our local hospital. He was diagnosed with an infection in both ears and was put on antibiotics right away. He must have developed the infection after his visit to the clinic in Austin. Too bad he didn't have his usual great time for all of his first visit to Texas. He's a wonderful little boy and a great joy to all our family.
1. This was my first time using a GPS to navigate around a new area. Everything worked out well - looking forward to using it again.
2. It is obvious that the United States is a nation at war. Young people in military uniforms were ubiquitous. And we witnessed acts of appreciation by civilians everywhere we went.
3. When people found out that we were Canadians, they often commented favourably on the recent Winter Olympics in Vancouver. I didn't realize they made such a positive impression.
4. While we enjoyed all our activities on our visit, the area that has the greatest appeal for me on a return visit will be the Hill Country. In addition to Fredericksburg, there are other communities and several wineries to visit. And I will make sure to get to the LBJ Ranch operated by the National Park Service - a great national resource. ____________________________________________________________
