More Missed

We’re taking care of some stuff around here right now, and then going out to SBA for some Tripp pampering time. She gets an oil change today, and we’ll start getting her ready for another adventure. While taking a break right now, I looked at more pix from the NxNW trip and found one in particular that I’d meant to post.

Flying NW from Winnipeg, we didn’t get any more pix I really like (beyond the stuff already posted) until we stopped for a stretch on the way to Regina. Sometimes a name on a map captures my attention, and the aviation chart showed a small airport directly on our route and about halfway named Unity. We of course had to stop!

Update: as you may have noticed, Anne had already blogged about our Unity stop during the NxNW trip.

Another pic I like from this day’s flying is one Anne got that I hadn’t seen until recently. I liked the colors and shapes at first glance, and it reminds me of so many small lakes and ponds we saw but didn’t snap.

Looking at it just now during upload I noticed something else I like. Do you see a cartoon shape in this one? The yellow outline of the pond traces a Snoopy looking cartoon dog with nose bottom-right and ears top-right.

Last for today, here’s another one I like of beautiful Edmonton. You can see how well the layout mingles countryside, suburbs and city.

I sure hope the good planning you can see in this pic continues with the preservation of the downtown airport that so effectively complements the larger international one on the outskirts. It would be a shame to undo the generations of hard work developing such a great place to live and work. Multiple airports bring many advantages in commerce and air safety.
