Boston

We’ve flown near here several times on this Adventure, but now we’re finally here in Boston with Zubair & Momina and their fun kids. This morning it looked like we might not be able to fly out of Martha’s Vineyard, but it cleared enough this afternoon. We overheard a pilot on his cell saying, “Gay Head is better,” so we flew past it on the way here.

Crossing to the mainland the clouds were more broken so we climbed and got great views like this. [update: the captions didn’t show on the rest of these pix for some reason, because I had to post from our Nexus 7 last nite. Hopefully now they’re fixed because I’ve updated from my computer.]

At the tip of a nearby peninsula was this fancy manse.

A little later I noticed this walled garden, then saw the tall fence.

We talked about how quickly our lives would change from freely wandering the skies if we were wrongly accused of some crime. But soon we’d met up with Zubair and were flying toward Boston for a glorious aerial tour.

We were pleased to be able to get close enough for this great view of the old Commons.

Soon we landed back at a small airport near Zubair’s place, and saw this Piper Cub leap into the sunset for a classic scene from years gone by.
