PORTLAND TO DENVER

Our plane was 15 minutes late arriving to the gate, so we got a late start. That was a good thing, because Laura was late getting through security. We boarded and took off quickly.

I looked out the window and saw a beautiful sky. The colors were rich. The composition of the cloud-to-sky photograph intrigues me.

Codi, Laura and I are sitting in the second to the last row.

Our view out the window is of the port side wing.

Here’s that wing again. The sky got a little lighter, and the clouds a little whiter.

We had a little turbulence for a while. Both Laura and Codi looked like they were getting car sick. =) I was fine.

What did I see when I looked up? No big surprise.

We’ll I’m listening to my Sharon Shannon MP3s and writing this blog. Now I’m writing about writing. I think I’ll watch one of the 5 DVDs I have stored on my hard drive. Over and out. Roger that.

PORTLAND INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Codi and I are heading to Florida for a couple days. There was a gorgeous sunrise this morning – the sun rose just behind Mt. Hood and covered the silhoutte in pink light. There were heavy rain clouds above the mountain and we could see rain and snow falling from them. It was amazing. Unfortunately, my camera was in the back of the airport shuttle. Damn.

We got to the airport early. There were hardly any people here at all. Security check took less than 5 minutes. Everyone was nice and friendly, but one lady working at the metal detectors was just nasty. Maybe she missed her coffee this morning. We complained to the TSA manager because she was very rude.

Codi and I made it into the terminal, only to find that we were nearly alone.

The runways and terminals look quiet and peaceful.

Of course, we got to our gate and there was only one old guy waiting. We practically had the whole place to ourselves.

I thought holiday travel was supposed to be hectic. Where are the crowds? Where are the throngs of wily travelers?

45 mins till we board. What to do… what to do…?
