It was a long flight, but so exciting! We started mid afternoon from Chicago, Illinois flying over Lake Michigan and the state of Michigan
The weather was clear to start so I could look out and see the ground way down below. It was fun to try to see if I could match what the map had with what I saw.
As we moved over Canada the clouds were starting to block some of the ground below, but it was still possible to see and sometimes I was able to match what was on the map with what was below.
We were heading east and the sun was getting lower and lower and the world outside was getting darker and darker. Pretty soon there were lights peeking between the clouds, but it was hard to really determine where we were. And then we were over the ocean and it was dark, very dark and I couldn’t see anything. I was too excited to sleep.
The sun didn’t rise until after we had landed on the ground. Wow! I am really here!
