Seattle Series part 3

Before our trip I had pre-paid for pick up. Since we had four people and at least six large suitcases a taxi was out of the question. We used the same reliable shuttle company as our previous trip. I had searched for a better price, that was a BIG mistake. We were able to have a large SUV and the driver waiting in baggage claim with a sign. The company said they would keep track of our arrival and call my cell phone when they see us land. As I mentioned we arrived late. My cell phone rings it is our ride (or so I thought) he asked where we were and said he would meet us at the curb where the shuttles drop off. I was a little angry this is not what I was promised and that area is huge so we may be dragging bags all over. We are at the carousel picking up our bags and I get another call. The service is spotty and I couldn’t understand the guy so I hung up. My husband taps me on the shoulder and says our driver is with him. I was thrilled there he was with our name on the sign as they promised. We all headed out to a beautiful Escalade just outside the door. We felt like big shots. alaska-cruise-0151.jpg
