For our last day in Florida, yesterday, we decided to hang out at the condo. We packed and lounged. Nothing very exciting happened.
Dinner found us at a nearby restaurant, Chuy’s Mexican Food. I started with a Pacifico beer. To start, our waitress served us some chips and salsa. The chips were warm and paper thin. They reminded me of the chips we used to get at Papasitas in Dallas, Texas. I am sure part of the reason I was so enamored is because this is the firs Mexican food restaurant I have eaten at in forever.
I ordered a combination platter. There was a taco, two chicken enchiladas, two cheese enchiladas, some rice and beans. It was way off my diet, but it was so good! I did not leave a single scrap on my plate. The server told us all of their food is made fresh daily. That includes their salsa and their tortillas. I would definitely go back!
This morning we all made our way to the airport to get our separate flights. Once Leslie and I got to Miami we ended up at a restaurant in the food court overlooking the tarmac. We enjoyed our last U. S. meal before going home.
When we originally checked in at the Caribbean Airlines counter, they made a specific point that the plane would begin boarding at 14:00. We were at the gate a good 20 or 30 minutes prior. At 14:00 we could tell we were back on Caribbean time. The gate agents did not even appear until 14:30.
Our flight to Port of Spain was uneventful.
