Skywatch Friday




Today's view is from a few days ago. It was so nice when I got out of work that I took a drive thru the back roads of the Jacksonville Airport. Before you get to the terminals there is a road that goes off to the right where they have the economy parking, rental car lots, a post office, and the pet kennels. I like the ride out there because there are no tall buildings blocking the view of the sky. There are, however, lots of fences.


It has been pretty chilly the last few days; as low as 36 in the morning when I get up! Brrrr. I've definitely aclimated to the southern weather a bit. Personally I'd be happy with about 70-75 everyday with sunshine. It can rain at night, or during the week when most people are at work.



This one was from when I was pulling off the highway at my exit. I saw this plane coming down for his landing and thought it was pretty neat. He went right over me, but I was too far along the road when he got closer, and there was no way I could just stop there on the off ramp.


This one was taken back in september at The Boat ramp. It was definitely one of the more beautiful sunsets I've seen. Not that there is such a thing as a bad one...but you know what I mean!
