The trip got off to a shaky start when, because of timing constraints, I was forced to fly US Air instead of my usual Delta. The flight was delayed, though none of the passangers knew by how much or whether it would take off at all. US Air didn’t bother updating the flight-information displays. But it wouldn’t have helped even if they had, because their monitors apparently date from before I was born and what few out of focus dots of light remain just aren’t enough.Fortunately things got better once I (finally) arrived in Virginia Beach. Because of my busy travel schedule, I check into dozens of hotels a year, and most places are pretty much the same, so I wasn’t expecting anything beyond a good view (which I got) from the Wyndham. But I was very pleasantly surprised. The Wyndham really understands what it means to go the extra mile and exceed expectations, and I found it staffed by friendly and exceptionally helpful people. It’s not easy to out-do a view of the Atlantic Ocean, but the people at the Wyndham managed. Thanks.
Now I’m back in New York, enjoying spring and the blossoming of wildlife that comes with it.
