USING THE REGULAR TAXI SERVICE: After you have collected your luggage, look for the taxi stand just outside the baggage claim area. ASK TO BE PUT IN A TAXI WITH OTHER PEOPLE HEADED FOR ST. JOHN . JUST BEFORE YOU ARE READY TO LEAVE THE AIRPORT, CALL US AT 779-4070. IF YOUR LUGGAGE DOESN'T ARRIVE: Determine when the next flight will be.

We are having a marvelous time. You have been very responsive, as always, to our requests. The kids and grand kids always look forward to coming. The little guys alternate the pool and the hot tub for half the day...Linda and Gordon
