Memory Lane – Oct 18, 2008
I’m reposting a day from my trip to Four Corners, from another blog, every Wednesday.
We started out with breakfast at the hotel, then packed up and checked out. It was a 10 minute drive to my cousin Tami’s house.
We met David and the kids, and had a great but short visit with them. David showed us his pictures. He and I got to talk about photography, that was rough. 😉 We made our way to Sky Harbour, where US Airways informed me that ripping a handle right out of the side of your suitcase was just normal wear and tear. We flew an A320 Uni-TED to San Francisco but were bumped to an Air Canada, Embrarer E190. The Air Canada flight had the neat headrest screens, but the first hour I mostly looked out the window watching the fog roll in over San Francisco. I pointed the TransAmerica Building to Sherri but the Golden Gate was fogged in.
I tried to identify where we were by looking at the ground until it got too dark. The sunset was amazing. The rest of the trip just “flew” by and we were in Calgary in no time. Happy to be home and sad our trip was all done. Customs was no problem and our baggage was on the carousel early. We loaded up a cart and were out of the Main Terminal looking for the Park N’ Jet bus. The driver asked which aisle we were parked. I remembered “H” but forgot it was full by the time we got there, so we had to drive around to the next row. We loaded up the Yukon and drove to Carstairs with a stop in Airdrie at McD’s. We came in with the luggage and were able to breathe a sigh of relief.
