You already read about the first leg of my trip, the NWA flight and my arrival at SeaTac. None of which went smoothly. Well, after I reached door 00 and contacted Kenmore Air, all my stress came to an end. The receptionist at Kenmore Air assured me that I was in the right place, and the courtesy van would be there within the half-hour to pick me up. It arrived in 15 minutes and the driver took me and two other passengers to King County Airport at Boeing Field.
After a short wait,I and two other passengers were ushered out to our airplane. I took the photo below through the waiting room window. Turns out that even though this was the closest plane to the airport, the plane we took is the red one barely visible to the left of the photo.
Our pilot — who said he was also our stewardess — gave us the pre-flight instructions and off we flew into the
wild blue gray overcast sky.
Because it was a foggy day, Seattle was looking just a bit blue.
As we flew toward Friday Harbor, the sky got thicker and took on a tinge of gray. As we approached the San Juans Islands, shrouded in mist, they looked like a good setting for a Gothic murder mystery.
The pilot said, “We’ll be making our final approach to Friday Harbor,” and the skies opened up and poured down rain.
The pilot laughed and said, “Fasten your seat belts!” Of course our seat belts were already fastened and we could all tell he wasn’t worried. He landed the plane with barely a bump.
Amoeba was waiting for me just inside the terminal doors with a great big hug!
