GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with another card featuring the High-Flying Adventure stamp set by My Favorite Things. This stamp sent reminded me of my husband. Every time we get in the car, my husband and I joke that we are off on another adventure. Usually those adventures are on the ground, but a couple of summers ago, we had the opportunity to fly to Tangier Island, a small island community in the Chesapeake Bay accessible only by air or by ferry boat. A friend of my husband is a pilot with a single-prop plane and he offered to take us along on one of his trips to the island.
I’m not a good flyer — in fact, I don’t like to fly at all — so I was hesitant to go along. I knew that I would regret not going, so after a lot of reassurances from the pilot, I decided to go.
Flying in a small plane is not the same as flying in a commercial airliner. We flew at a much lower altitude so we could see the details of the landscape below us. On the one hand, it was interesting, but if you are also afraid of heights like I am, you want to be either a lot closer to the ground or high enough that you don’t see it! But after awhile, I relaxed enough to enjoy seeing the world from a different perspective.
We walked around the island, had lunch with the locals, and thoroughly enjoyed our day. If I hadn’t gone, I would have missed out on a memorable high-flying adventure!
