About Us...

About Us...
This is our travel blog... our electronic travel journal you could call it... documenting our journeys to new & different places. I called our blog, 'Tree Top Flyin'... a Jimmy Buffett reference that reminds me of traveling, & the adventures to be had with our newly acclaimed 'IFR' Pilot & his plane. We're a non-traditional family - living in non-traditional ways... and I love it that way. For the four of us life is quick & distinct... it's unique and adventuresome - but it's also very normal. We have angst, & we have laughter. We have pain and we have greatness. We're happy, and we're whole...this family, that is mine.

Honeymoon Part II

Flying to Milford Sound
I must get through the 'Honeymoon Posts' before our first anniversary. 

We took a small plane through The Sounds, and it was beauuuuuutiful.
It was just a 35 minute flight to Milford - but the contrast in scenes made it seem as though we were traveling through a different universe.
Islands, Snow-caps, Waterfalls, Mountains

Jim was thrilled to sit co-pilot - now he knows what it feels like to be me - sitting, watching, doing nothing.
This was a shot just before we did what Jim and I would never have done in our own plane...
see the narrow canyon ahead? the pilot flew us up into it and turned the plane around completely - hugging mountain on every side. Exhilarating yes, but not conservative aviation. 
That was not in the brochure. 

Once we landed we jumped on a small cruiser and floated to see thunderous waterfalls and some wet wildlife.
