Who wants to fly?

Alaska, Canada, Alaska……Washington?

2:30 It is Friday midday and we are stuck sitting in a plane in Whitehorse, BC.  Adventures in flying!  Weather was bad and poor visibility prevented us from landing in Juneau.  We left Wrangell, AK at 10am and planned to touch down in Petersburg, Juneau, Seattle and finally Bellingham.  Who knows how many stops we have ahead of us now? Whenever flying, always; bring plenty of healthy snacks, empty water bottle (beg the flight attendant to fill ASAP), ear plugs, ginger chews, travel pillow and of course something to occupy your time.

5:30 finally landed in Juneau, but have missed our connecting flight, along with about 50 other people. Below are some friendly guys from the airport.

8:30 OK…now it is Friday night and we still haven’t made it south.  Juneau is our home for the night. Luckily a very sweet gal named Pat has taken us in off the street. She has given us a short driving tour of Juneau, bowl of ice cream, hot shower and a soft warm bed! OMG, I also have to mention she is driving us back to the airport at 4am. Sometimes peoples’ kindness just blows me away.

11:00am Saturday – Finally made it to Seattle. I knew if I kept flying long enough I would end up at a Starbucks. One more short flight to Bellingham, then on to our family reunion and four days of sailing. Hope everyone is having a happy and busy summer. Signing-off for a few days. Nameste
