Take your tiny wings and fly away…

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/sweeping-motions/

Yesterday I was at work.  It was nice, partly to see people at work again, and also frankly because it was nice to have a day away from contractors at the house.  Not that the guys we have working on the house right now aren’t fantastic – they are.  It was just a really nice change.

Anyway, in addition to a nice walk at lunch, I also went for a run after work.  I decided to run down to Clover Point, and while I would love to say – surprise!  Look at what was going on there!  I knew full well what was going on there, and went down at the time I did completely on purpose.  I was, however, surprised that I managed to finish my whole training run during the madness, but I did, and then saw this.  What was that, you say?  Well, check it out here:  http://www.rcaf-arc.forces.gc.ca/en/snowbirds/index.page and here:  http://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/snowbirds-bring-thousands-to-victoria-waterfront-for-aerobatic-show-1.2029263.

  1. “In response as avoidance…” LOL

  2. BRILLIANT, Emily Schudel: give the woman a cigar !!!
    I have never seen such terrific shots of an air show: you are to be congratulated !!!!!
    Oh, how exciting it must have been … lucky you ! The Snowbirds are wonderful !

  3. We have the Blue Angels (US Navy) that put on air shows here in FL. So loud but so darn amazing. These are awesome shots!

    • Thanks! I think I may have noticed how loud they were more if I hadn’t been down there. I was so busy taking pictures, I didn’t even think about the noise!

  4. Wonderful shots and your written tour is equally impressive. I have never seen a live air show. I recently missed the Blue Angels in Niagara Falls, New York. I never know they’re close until after the fact. Seeing your blog makes me determined not to miss them again.

    • Thanks! I hadn’t really paid much attention to the fact that the Snowbirds were coming until the day of, but I am glad I braved the crowds to see them!

  5. So excited about the planes and thank you for liking my post.
