The Plane, The Plane!

A couple of weeks ago, Motor Man and I learned that seaplane rides would be offered Labor Day weekend at Smithfield Station, a local restaurant/hotel/marina. We immediately knew it was something we’d like to do.

We were waiting on the dock when the plane arrived Friday afternoon.

And after we had donned our life vests, had our picture taken. We wore headsets during the flight, so we could talk with each other and our pilot, Marc.

It was such a beautiful day for flying. There are so many tributaries in our area, which of course, look very different from the air.

We flew right by our house.  Marc even circled around a second time, so I could get plenty of pictures.

I took a short video of our landing back at Smithfield Station. It was smooth as silk.

Flying in a seaplane was something that neither of us had ever thought about, but it was a great experience.

  1. Well we know how much fun it is to be in a smaller plane – never landed in the water of course in ours, but it’s just lovely “up there” looking “down here”.

  2. How AMAZING!!! Y’all have just the best adventures! Loved seeing the Station from the air perspective.

  3. Wow! What an adventure!

  4. cool experience! There’s something about flying over land/buildings that are familiar that’s soooo interesting!! One of my sisters boyfriends years ago had a 2 seater plane and took me up for a spin over our farm. Seeing all the places I knew but from that birds-eye view was amazing – fun fun!! MJ
