Family Vacation #2 - Flying & Sister-ing


Y'all know my sweet sister is a pilot...

...so she flew up to Asheville and picked up Scout and me for a little mini vacation at her house...

...we had to wait on the runway for several planes to land...

...the airport as we took off...the Man is waiting there to catch his flight to his conference...

...climbing through the clouds...

...the scenery was lovely...

...everything was so lush and green...

...Jack slept most of the way - I was so glad that he took to flying so well...

...approaching the runway by Karen's house...

...Touchdown...I was trying to get a picture of the blur of trees as we landed - but I didn't have time to reset my camera and the shutter speed was too fast - so it really just looks like we're sitting still and we're probably going 80 mph...

...this is just a pretty pond beside the runway - the sort of yellow light is caused by an approaching afternoon thunderstorm - they were shortlived and we had so much fun! Thanks Karen!!!

  3. What larks Pip old chap!

    Glad to see the dawg slept through it. Something very exciting for Scout to tell his friends when he gets back home.

    My Aunty took us to her house in her plane - it would have to be pretty special to top that!

  7. Those clouds are so beautiful and I love the green runway! There is nothing like that funky pre-storm light. It looks like you are having great fun!

  8. Gorgeous pics! It must feel so much more real on a smaller plane like that, I've only flown on big jets.
