Yesterday was long - I did four sessions at the NOUG and by the time I was done, I was fairly tired. It is amazing how hard on the feet standing that long and talking can be.
So, I got in my rented PT Cruiser and headed for Boston's Logan airport. I got there to find my flight was delayed (big surprise) but only by 45 minutes. And then by 1:15, then 1:45, then 2:15, then 2:30, then 3:00 hours. Finally, after being in the airport for about 5 hours (I got there early, thought I'd grab a bite to eat at the legal seafood before my flight...) we boarded.
And this was the view:
Great seats - every seat is a window seat, every seat is an aisle seat as well. No bad seats (the bad seats are right by the toilet with the good smelling blue water) - since there were no toilets. It is almost like you are flying the plane yourself as you lean out into the aisle there - nice view out the front of the plane.
Service was good, the same guys that checked the seatbelts, did the "here are the exits", flew the plane and helped with the luggage at each end.
The Augusta Maine airport is not very large, if you could not gather that from the above.
The neat thing about this flight (I was expecting all of this, the delay, the small plane and all - been there, done that) is the fact it is not a direct flight. It "connects" through Rockland (to drop off a couple of people and deliver packages). The Rockland airport is a single strip in the middle of a marsh, the terminal is a double wide trailer. When you land (landing in one of these planes is "real flying", you get the full experience of motion), you do not pull off onto a siding and taxi back, they just spin the plane around and drive back down the runway (as there is nothing else there).
Oh well, after todays session - drive to Portland Maine and fly back to Washington and home. Looking forward to it.
