I am so very proud of Miss T.
She got on the plane! I didn't tell her she was flying until about 30 minutes before we were to leave for the airport. She cried alligator tears and said outloud her fears.....running out of gas, crashing etc.
My Mom was there to take us to the airport. Luckily she helped talk Miss T into the flight and I promised her if it was the absolute WORST thing she'd ever experienced that I would drive her home. My Mom also said that "45 years of her life was spent being afraid to fly" and she decided that she didn't want to live in that kind of fear, so she took a short flight. Miss T seemed to listen to our rationalle and walked, head high, fear still showing, but brave, into the airport and onto the plane.
She almost tore my arm off holding on when we took off and when we landed.
I was sitting on the wing window seat and was able to get some great pictures.
The pilot announced were were coming in over Daytona Beach to begin our decent to Orlando. I've been to Daytona several times and quickly recognized the bridge and the racetrack! It was awesome!
It was an hour and oh, 5-15 min flight. But it took us over and hour just to get OUT of Orlando and on our way to Nokomis. The rental car wasn't ready....and by the time it was we were heading out into 5pm traffic straight through I-4 and the Orlando hub-bub of theme park and after work traffic.
Finally reached our hotel at 8:30pm....ahhhhhhh.....
