Long trip to the Northwest yesterday. Got up at three in the morning to get to the airport for a two-and-a-half hour flight to Seattle. Everything went smoothly until our pilot tried to land at Sea-Tac in thick flog, he aborted the landing, swung round twice and attempted three landings, but finally pulled up and headed to Bellingham, Washington to get gas. Sat on the tarmac for more than an hour. Finally, we landed back at Sea Tac at one in the afternoon. A long day of travel, but we finally made it to our daughter's home to see the real stars of the journey.
Here's the view from Issaquah this morning.
Sunrise over the Tiger Mountains on Christmas Eve. The Nutcracker this afternoon and present overload to follow.
