Well, we were a little off with the warmer weather statement. It seems we had forgotten that it always chills off again before Easter. So, we are back to cool mornings and evenings and today even the afternoon is pleasant enough to open all of the windows and put a chill in the condo.
Thus, in honor of the return of fall we will go back in time to share with you something that we experienced just a few weeks after moving to Stuart.
That thing is the...
I know what you all are thinking. But you two don't really "DO" things. And, you are right. We don't. Not in the sense that others do, anyway.
You see... the airport is only a couple of miles from our condo. And the "show" therefore wound up being right in front of our condo. Sometimes it even flew right over our heads!
So, we were fortunate enough to watch the whole event from the comfort of our front stoop.
Nicole grew up with lots of talk of planes and going to plenty of airshows since her father worked for Pratt & Whitney, one of the sponsors of this show. Needless to say there was some perma-grin going on throughout on her part.
Being so close to the show we experienced a few extra days of practice flights, arrivals and departures. The real kick off though is the night flight on Friday evening just after sunset. It is quite something to watch even if our camera wasn't able to capture it well.
The next two days were started off with the Navy Leap Frogs.
And then there were the planes...
Last up are the T's.
Their path repeatedly brought them directly over our condo numerous times over the course of the three day event. They are spectacular to see and hear.
Oh, no. It's 5:15 already. We've got to go. Hope you enjoyed the show!
