It’s so good to be back from Ottawa, although I had such a great time there. I was a little nervous to get back on the train, in fear that I would be jipped out of cake again. Fortunately, I was sitting a little further back this time so was one of the first people to get my meal. Lo and behold, there was cake!
It was apple caramel and absolutely amazing. The girl next to me (who as I mentioned in my previous blog, had her butter leap into the air and onto the floor, completely unprovoked) said “Oh my gosh, I just inhaled my cake – it’s amazing!” Yum-o. I certainly agreed. The main meal was excellent too. I had the asian noodle BBQ chicken thing:
Very impressed with the food on Via Rail.
I spent most of the day yesterday just recovering from the long trip home. I was really weak and felt like I had the full blown flu. I’m sure it was just my MS saying “You did too much this past week – smarten up!” At least I felt much better today, plus the weather was perfect. Needless to say, I went for a flight. I love it when the cadets and their gliders are there. It’s so neat to see:
The One Design was out doing aerobatics too:
I headed out toward Port Colborne, and flew by a slew of fisher-folks out on Lake Erie:
I was going to fly really low over the water and scare away the poor little fishies, but decided against it:
I couldn’t believe how many boats there were out there. Here’s the parking lot with the ten thousand boat trailers:
This lighthouse is part way between Port Colborne and Fort Erie:
I decided not to fly around the Niagara Falls scenic circuit, but snapped this pic on the way by:
Coming back in to land, I flew past one of the gliders:
It was a great flight – so nice to be back in the air again. I’m hoping for a decent day on Thursday, as it’s my compressed day off. I was hoping to head out to the airport and wash my bird poop covered plane. The belly is quite oily too from the aerobatics. Definitely needs a good cleaning. Perhaps I should fly before I wash it…hmmmm…..
Today’s symptoms: Felt so much better than yesterday. Feeling a little weak this afternoon and have a bit of a headache, but nothing much else to report. Yea!
