RobertE wasn't exactly correct. That's his fantasy of how we arrive in AC.
We arrive, get a taxi to our hotel. On the way we stop by the grocery store for as much diet coke as they'll let us have, OJ, fruit and handmade tortillas. Then we head to the hotel, get checked in. Unpack clothes & set out toiletries. Unpack dive gear and lay out for the next morning. Make sure diet coke is in fridge (RobertE's version of coffee). Change clothes & check out the hotel and beach/dock areas. Stare at the beautiful ocean and look forward to the next day's diving.
Then make our way to BC's. We typically toast all of our Denver friends that can't be there with us. (Yes, even Pirate)
