Remember the shots of fireball whiskey we did before we went to bed? Well, apparently some people are allergic to large doses of cinnamon – like my husband. He woke up at 2:30 and felt like there was something in his throat. Not his throat closing up, but like something was stuck in it and he could still breathe. We went to the ER (a new experience for us on a KW trip!) and found that his uvula was swollen – nothing else. After a healthy dose of anti-inflammatories the swelling started to go down, and they let him go after 3 hours in the ER. We got back to the rental at 6:30 AM, but at least we were tired enough that we slept through the roosters, trash trucks and scooters this time!
We woke up when the rest of the group was packing the SUV for the return trip and he felt much better. We saw everyone off, then packed up our stuff for Paradise Porters. I can’t say how great this service is – they come pick up your bags and keep them until you’re ready to leave. No more hauling your bags around all day until your evening flight. The only thing we didn’t like was that we couldn’t leave them there until we were ready to leave for the airport, they had to be picked up by 5:00.
We spent the rest of the morning walking to various pharmacies to fill the hubby’s script. Walgreen’s pharmacy must be closed on Saturday, the CVS on Front Street doesn’t have a pharmacy, but the one on Truman does.
Script filled, it was time for lunch – at Fogarty’s. We shared a cheese quesadilla and a cobb salad that was bigger than my head and had a few drinks from Flying Monkeys. Love that place.
When it’s your last day in KW, what do you do? For us that’s easy – go watch Michael McCloud at the SWB. What a great way to spend our afternoon. Michael’s looking tired these days and I hear his health isn’t the greatest. I hope he’s around for many more years since we love to see him when we’re in town. I can’t think of any other way I’d like to spend my last day. We like to start the trip at SWB and end it the same way.
We drug ourselves out of SWB and decided to have an early dinner at JDL’s since we liked it so much the first time. On our way there, we picked up our suitcases from Paradise Porters ($10 a bag, an excellent price) . JDL’s was a short walk and we put our bags in the corner while we ate. Their pierogies were excellent! After dinner we called a cab to the airport. Our trip was almost over. :(
Flights home were uneventful, and we spent the night in Richmond before going home the next day. When we left the hotel that morning, it was snowing again. We’d come full circle – but I would rather be in sunny KW temps!
We'll be back, and for 2 weeks next time - including ride time on the bike. Yep, we're coming down on the bike again! Looking forward to that.
I hope I helped someone pass the days before their next trip! Heaven knows I read every trip report I could while we counted down the days!
