What a wonderful day off. My mother and I headed out to the airport around 8:30. We were hoping to make it out to Stratford for around 10:00. I couldn’t believe how slow we were climbing due to the high humidity. It was a very smooth flight though. We arrived at Stratford Airport at exactly 10:00. I called Stratford Unicom just before landing and the dispatcher asked me if I would like her to call me a cab. I parked the plane and the cab was waiting for us as soon as we walked into the terminal building. The dispatcher greeted us and made us feel very welcomed. http://www.geocities.com/pcfc69/page6.html We had the cab drop us off at the Tim Horton’s downtown. We were in desperate need of a java and goodie. It was such a nice town, with great shops in a relatively small area. We wandered around for a few hours before starting to get a little pooped. Back at the Airport, my sleepiness took over, as shown here:
Ah yes, the two blondes take a little nappy together. I hope I’m still welcome at Stratford Airport, despite my obvious silliness. Jan and I would love to go back in the Fall.
I discovered a very interesting artist at one of the shops, and I’m interested in purchasing a print or two. His name is Michael Sowa and you can check out some of his works here: Michael Sowa We had a tail wind on the way home so the trip was about 20 minutes shorter. Unfortunately, the white, fluffy clouds were rolling in which made the ride a tad bumpy. Once we landed back in St. Catharines, Jan asked me if I turned off all the “buttons and things.” I’m proud to see how much she has picked up on the technical garble of aviation!
Today’s symptoms: My little nap on the floor of the terminal building at the Stratford Airport perked me up enough for our flight back. Now I’m so tired I could…..sleep.
