The Weekend of Jet Engines

This past weekend was full of jet engines. Actually, it was full of jet engines Thursday and Friday too. The Blue Angels were in town for the Sailabration and lucky for us we got to enjoy their show from the roof top deck. In order to get enough momentum for their tricks down by the water, they used the air space directly above us as their flight path. Something about the proximity of the planes and their maneuvers were completely mesmerizing.

On Saturday, we had a few friends over to catch them in action while avoiding the crowds of the harbor. Sunday, Andrew and I couldn't help but watch the whole performance again. All said and done, they performed tricks and flew about the city for nearly an hour before disappearing back into the horizon.


It was all very fun while it lasted, but yesterday I was finally able to enjoy a quiet, peaceful, jet engine free day again. And that, my friends, was pretty fabulous too. :)
