Views from the Plane Day 12 Home to Vermont #goaheadtours

March 30, 2015

Sadly our tour of Scotland has come to an end. We're up early for our three hour wait at the Glasgow airport; followed by our seven hour flight to Newark. This will be followed by a four hour drive home to Vermont. OY, long day.

The worst thing about taking trips away from home, especially far from home, is the travel time. But I must say it was worth it. As Paul, our Scotland coach driver, said "The best thing about flying on a airplane is getting off it!"

Our flight path takes us over Greenland and the Labrador Sea so we get some incredible views from the plane.

We had a strong head wind but still land close to the promised time. After hustling through Immigration and Customs, we hit the road, racing to pick up Riley at the kennel, I mean SPA.

Back in Vermont, I do mountains of laundry and start editing the over 3000 images I shot. Jay got the maple tree taps (spiles) going and we start collecting sap. See my blog: http://photosbynanci.blogspot.com/2015/04/backyard-maple-sugaring-today-we-boil.html

My pepper, basil and tomato seed sprouted while we were away so I set up the indoor greenhouse.
Life pretty much returns to normal.

We start thinking about our next adventure, Little Cayman or Belize. I think we need to get into tropical waters. Our Scuba Gear is jealous that we're been traveling without it.

Until next time...
