It’s Alan’s Birthday!
4/7/13 10:30 PM
We arrived at the Dry Tortugas just in time to meet our great friends Alan and Kit Bryant.
The surprise birthday plan was hatched by Kit more than a month ago. Kit gave Alan a wonderful trip to the Florida Keys, including a Sea Plane flight from Key West to Fort Jefferson at the Dry Tortugas. The surprise was to be that Michelle and I would be sitting in the harbor when they flew in.
We made it just in time, but Facebook ruined the surprise. Michelle and I had unfriended Alan on FB last month so that he wouldn’t see any of our posts as we made final preparations for our trip. It worked perfectly until a mutual friend posted a “Bon Voyage” note on my FB page and even though Alan wasn’t my friend on FB, he could see my posts via our mutual friend. Thanks Facebook!
Surprise spoiled, we still had a great time with our friends, although the visit was too short as they had to catch the 3:00 PM flight back to Key West.
