Fly-Away Travel Day

Jupiter Lighthouse at Sunset

 It is a travel day. We are taking what seems like the most circuitous route possible from West Palm Beach to Houston on Southwest. There were no direct flights and so we have visited Atlanta at sunrise and are now trapped on a plane in Jackson, Mississippi, waiting to load and then head off to Houston. Ugh.

It was kinda cool to land in Atlanta at sunrise and see the rising sun kissing the tops of the tall trees. We had departed Palm Beach under the cover of darkness. The blessing has been very empty flights and Chris and I have enjoyed a middle season both legs of the journey thus far. Hopefully we will end the trip three for three in that department. 

I am looking forward to seeing Dad and the Houston part of the family for a couple of days before heading back to frozen Maryland. I am hopeful of keeping the turnaround time in Maryland short. I long to see the Jupiter Lighthouse again and enjoy the shorts, sandals, and tee-shirt weather. I have very much enjoyed starting my retirement in a warm climate.

Despite missing my morning beach walk, the day has been going fairly well. Getting up at 4 AM to catch a 6:25 AM flight was not a lot of fun, but that is how it is sometimes.

Another fly-away day partially complete.
