Day 2 of Travel - Turbulence

Day 2 of travel began very early - 3:00am to be exact.
We took the hotel shuttle to the airport at 4:00am.
The plan was to grab a light breakfast before boarding the plane.
But, after getting in the wrong line to check in,
Followed by hubby getting randomly selected for a more detailed security search,
A fairly long line up to get through customs
We made it to our gate in time to board.
Good thing I had 5 Timbits before we left the hotel.

Once we were boarded we had our first delay.
It turned out with the winter weather an alternate flight plan had to be submitted.
Finally, after deicing we were ready for take off.

After a very turbulent flight we were cleared to land.
However, the winter weather had them down to one runway 
So we had to wait our turn.
It turns out we had to make two landing attempts
As the plane landing before us took a slide.
After an extremely rough descent and bumpy landing
We were finally back on solid ground
With applause for the amazing crew who got us there safely.

After only having coffee and some cookies on the plane
We definitely needed some food.
This Farmer’s Bagel hit the spot.

We weren’t too surprised our connecting flight was delayed
So we just relaxed and watched some movies.
Three o’clock rolled around and we found out
The flight captain was flying in from New York. 
He finally arrived and boarding began.

We once again had to wait for deicing
As the winds were too high to begin the process.
Another 40 minute wait as the plane rocked back and forth in the wind.
Finally the winds slowed down enough and we were off to better weather.

Three hours later than expected we finally touched down.
Our daughter and son-in-law were waiting for us
And took us out to dinner.
After our long day some comfort food was on the menu.

Now, the fun can begin 😊
