This week's prompts are: 1) Starts with P 2) Week's favorite 3) Whole
My knees have been a hindrance this week, which means I haven't taken any photos. So I've chosen a photo I took a few weeks ago when the Husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. Our present to each other was a soaring adventure! We each experienced a whole ride to ourselves in the glider plane. It was a spectacular ride lasting about 35 or so minutes.
In case it's not clear, P is for plane — the towing plane (the one at the bottom in the photo) and glider plane. Heading into the sky is the Husband.
It was a whole lot of fun! Wheeeeeeeeeee!

the glider must be fun, did the other plane launch thee glider?ReplyDelete
Hi, Ann. Yes, the plane launched mine, too. I had to wait until the Husband came back.Delete
You 2 are braver souls than I. Were you the only ones in the glider...I'm thinking no but just asking. Happy belated wedding anniversary.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Birgit. The glider can only fit 2 very skinny, skinny passengers. Because the Husband and I are not, we opted to take separate trips. If we had gone up together, I don't know how the glider would've stayed up there. The pilot wasn't very skinny, skinny, either. lolDelete
They do soaring a but south of here.ReplyDelete
The gliders look so graceful in the air.Delete
Oh I would so do this!ReplyDelete
What a fabulous adventure adn congrats on your 20 years being marriedReplyDelete
The glider looks perfect - its long wings and light weight allows it to soar easily with the warm thermals propelling it up to the heads. Perfect look at the letter 'P'!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Ralph. It's fun to imagine the glider riding the thermals like surfers riding the waves.Delete
It looks like a good experience but I think I'd prefer something with an engine in it :)ReplyDelete
Heh, me too ... or at least something with the potential to become an engine. :)Delete
LOL I didn't think about it not having an engine until after the flight. The landing was smooth.Delete
Reminded me of this song ... recorded waaaaay back in 1911! :)ReplyDelete
I love the song! Thanks, Widders.Delete
Wow! Happy anniversary! Sorry to hear your knees are troubling you.ReplyDelete
I'm not so sure that would be fun to me. Although I overcame a fear of flying that might push me to the limit. I'm glad you had fun anyway. Congratulations and I hope your knees feel better.ReplyDelete
Wow, flying in a glider, that would be great fun! Congrats on 20 years, my hubby and I are coming up on 31. Hope the knees feel better.ReplyDelete
Sorry about your knees, arthritis is hard on a person. Both of us have som. Meloxicam to the rescue.ReplyDelete
That does sound like it would be a lot of fun! Bet it was beautiful. Sorry to hear the knees have been bothering. Hope they're better by now. Sorry I'm so late to get around visiting this week. I do appreciate your participation!ReplyDelete
