Back at the beginning of October, I flew to Florida to do some book signings at the shop owned by a woman who is actually one of the characters in my book. (She’s “Brenda” in the book, but don’t tell anybody.) I always take something to read on the plane when I fly and this time it was really weird…I was reading my OWN book!
As we approached the Punta Gorda area, we began to see clouds that were part of the Hurricane Matthew outer bands. I was grateful that the hurricane stayed on the east side of the state, but worried for the hundreds of thousands of people that were in the path of the storm.
Flying over Charlotte Harbor we could see the effect the wind was having on the water. See those funny white footprints the wind was leaving as it scraped the surface of the water? Very cool.
Getting ready to make our turn and then head for the runway.
Almost on the ground and I could see the airport…let the fun begin!
