okay so the shoot’s over in about three hours, i have my bag packed and my passport and i checked in via the app like you told me to so that means I’m ready, right?
I think so. I have a car booked to collect us to take us to the airport. I've packed back-up chargers too.
you’re literally perfect. Sabina’s going to meet us at the airport i think, since she’s flying out same time as us. I have a hoodie for my dress-down disguise 😀
Dress down is only needed as far as the airplane at least. We're on the pre-board, we'll get collected at the other end and taken to the hotel. You don't have call until the following day. I was asked if you wanted to go on a yacht trip?
A yacht trip? :/
Yes. There's the offer of a trip on a private yacht to a spot to see dolphins, visit a cove and swim in the ocean. Apparently it's complimentary for 'valued guests'.
...that seems suspect. Are you sure it’s not a secret way for us to get murdered? 😉 Are you and Sabina coming?
It'd be a terrible way for someone to murder people. They'd be instant suspects. But yes, we'd all be going. It'd also allow for a very private day.
Then it’ll be nice. I haven’t actually ever swam with dolphins for the fun of it.
But you have for ... professional reasons?
For photoshoots, I have, yes.
..strange. Well, this way you could potentially see a wild pod and splash with them.
How is that strange?
Most have done the swimming with dolphins thing for recreational purposes. Less so for work. It's rarely something come across. That's all.
I guess so, but most people also do things like visit theme parks for fun and not for photoshoots or as part of PR deals.
I suppose that's true. I've never been at all.
See we should fix that too. Maybe when we’re back from the Bahamas.
I'm not sure it'd be wise. I'm likely to punch anything that's startling, even on rides.
That’s fair. Maybe you could avoid the rides?
That might work. You'd need to know what those ones were.
I’m sure we could still have a good day out, though the amount of people might drive you to want to break things too.
I can probably deal with it for one day.
That would be nice, if you could stick it out for me. Maybe you’d have fun.
I'm sure, for you, and with you. I could. I'm willing to try.
💕 you’re so good to me.
You earned it. And it's rather easy.
I’m so very lucky that I’ve found people like you to be in my life.
btw, can we stop and grab in and out before we get to the airport?
Yes, airport food is always too expensive, and usually terrible. Best to eat pre-plane.
Well, expenses aren’t really an issue but I’m craving bad food.
They might not be an issue but they shouldn't be rewarded for bleeding people dry just because they're stuck there. It's not bad though?
That’s true, it’s very mercenary.
You’re sure there’s no extra things i need to do? I think I’m good...
Nothing is jumping out. I'll go through the checklist before I meet you and make sure it's covered. I have all the documents we need, your itinerary is on the tablet, you have your passport, we're checked in. I think that's it.
Neat. And then it’s Bahamas for work and holiday. Sabina’s staying an extra week too so you can go find something relaxing to do for a little while. I’m sure there’s some kind of extreme sport you could try your hand at.
They have skydiving. I could possibly do it without a parachute at this point.
Without a parachute seems far too dangerous.
Isn't that what makes it extreme?
That is a good point, but you’d have a hard time explaining how you survived.
Okay that's fair. I guess I'll need to wear the parachute then.
Sometimes i have good ideas. Ok better focus on the shoot - freedom soon!
I'll double check with the house sitter service and get on the road. See you in a while.
