Looking Down

Flying always presents the opportunity for interesting perspectives. On a recent commercial flight, I spotted this scene below, a spit of land along the east coast of the USA:

I’m not sure exactly where this was. I lost track of our location. Still, looking down from 35,000 feet can be very instructive, giving one a sense of how big, or how small, this planet is. Take time to enjoy the view wherever you are.

Gallo Rojo, Aruba, iPhone video

Stopped at Gallo Rojo in San Nicolaas, Aruba, DWI recently. This is a corner joint that served breakfast and baked goods, not to mention the local papers and cold drinks. Did a little iPhone video just for fun. Here it is:

Tasty ham, egg, and cheese sandwich there. Just what you might need on the way to or from Baby Beach or to start the day after a long night. Enjoy every meal. Bon dia.
