After the honeymoon

The actual honeymoon had to come to an end. After ten excellent days in the Bahamas and Florida in 1986 we did find our way home. You could tell that the vacation was over when we arrived at La Guardia...The staff at the baggage claim had a bit of Queens 'tude, at least that day. Wonder why some New Yorkers refer to that airport as La Garbage?

But the flight north to LGA was nice on Eastern Airlines (remember them?) , and the L1011 'widebody' (not mine) was a great plane, big, quiet and this airhead had a window on the port side. And as always, I was looking for pictures. And I like this one. It was sunset over Virginia, I'd guess. The sun peering over the heavily laden storm clouds far to the west ensured a smooth ride.

A great experience.
