Waiting for Daddy
Ferry Landing, named because this is where the ferry lands when people travel on and off the island. The ferry takes travelers from the Windward side to the Leeward side of the island, where the air terminal is located. It is a really fun place to bring the kids to receive dad and any other friendly face that might be coming home. It's also where many tears are shed when some of our closest friends leave.
On this particular day the kids were here to welcome dad home after being gone only a week. The water is clear in shades of blue and green. Looking into it reminds me of looking into a salt water fish tank, with a variety of colorful fish, coral, rocks and seaglass. As the ferry approaches the kids run over to the dock to wave at the newcomers and returning residents. Then they spot daddy waving back at them.
This is definitely better then any airport I have ever been in. We are very blessed to have the opportunity to experience life in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Daddy's home, again!! Yay!
