Trip to New York

We had a long, but very fun day getting from Florida to New York with Angel Flight. They were wonderful - we had great pilots who were so thoughtful and generous with their time and airplanes. The whole thing was a great adventure. For most of the day we faced a pretty stiff head-wind, so the trip was even longer than it could have been, but we certainly didn't mind! John was in his element. On one flight, just before landing, there was a good deal of turbulance. I was quite startled once when the plane lurched, so I quickly looked over at Ellie to see if it had upset her, and there was a smile on her face that reached from one ear to the other! I couldn't see John's face in that moment, but I kind of think his expression mirrored hers. Of course.

Oh My!! Sarah, My stomach was doing flips when I saw the planes I did not realize they were so small. I have a whole new admiration for you I would have been putting a whole new meaning to getting air sick.
