Chadair seems to have found its way!
Picturit: Oh yes, Ray. and the thing is I am going Chadair again in a few weeks.... same destination smile.
Great view Astrid.
Picturit: I was impressed, Frank. We were lucky with the clear sky.
Très jolie vue aérienne avec les petites îles dans le fond.
Picturit: Don't you just love that view. The coastline is just amazing.
A beautiful dive that makes you want to go on a trip...
Have a good day Astrid
Picturit: To be honest, Marie, I will make the trip again in two weeks time... I so hope for some snow!!!

Those islands intrigue Astrid. I wonder if any people have one all to themselves?
Picturit: Wouldn't it wonderful to be on such an island and nobody else. just a boat to get to the mainland for groceries and for the rest nice and quiet.
Many islands and I saw more than 1 house on them sad.
Portland, Maine, is such a small city (ca 66K) for an international airport. It surprised me. You can even tell by its port how small it is. I love it.
Picturit: I was so surprised that it even had an airport that close by... but then going by car is almost no option if you want to get from state to state.
Thank you, Ginnie.

What a wonderful view from the plane!
Picturit: Thank you, Philine.
I love going by plane and see the world from above.
Magnifique vu de tout la-haut ...
Picturit: I can so enjoy these travels, Claudine and than those views...
A fine view from the sky. Can't be Chadair as the window seems to be very clean
Picturit: I heard they have a cleaning service now too.... ChadClean... "for all your dirty work"....
In two weeks I go there again... just me, I hope there will be snow smile....
Brother in law and I are going to some renovation work in their house, I will stay for 2 weeks smile.

It looks as if you have a huge pictuit window Astrid. A quirk of the lens I suspect.
Picturit: I don't know about that, Chad. It is my small point-and-shoot camera. I was impressed with the result.
Dat was fraai aankomen met dit mooie uitzicht!
Picturit: Dit is toch geweldig, dit vind ik bijna het mooiste van vliegen. We vlogen een hele lange tijd langs de kust.

je had je plekje goed gekozen Astrid

een prachtig en duidelijk uitzicht had je daar

prettige dag
Picturit: Dat was weer genieten en altijd weer mazzel met de zitplaats. We hebben een hele tijd langs de kust gevlogen, erg mooi.
Nog een goed weekend.

Looks like an agreeable place to spend one's life. Stay on an island and laugh at the working stiffs on the mainland.
Picturit: That would be great, Louis. Also Chris was kind of interested... I would not mind living on an island and have a nice boat.

Tu prends de la hauteur
Picturit: grin.... wishful thinking, JP.... 168cm... not more..
Very good aerial shot Astrid, what a shame you had the wing in the way hiding part of the view.
Picturit: Thank you, Brian, I was already happy that I was not above the wing completely....
This was already a gift.
The islands along our shared coast are very beautiful. Love your excellent POV.
Picturit: Thank you, Care. This is such a wonderful place to land. We flew a long time along the coast. I loved to see the small islands.
We are watching now "Anne with an E"... that is from Prince Edward Island. We love it.
That's a great shot, Astrid..........you were lucky with the window being clear, too smile
Picturit: I was lucky indeed, Martin. These are the moments that I don't take for granted..

This is an interesting view of Portland. I love it there but have never seen it from the air.
Picturit: It is a small city but coming in by air was very special.
An impressive point of view. Friendship
isn't it great to be able to get a good shot of the harbour from a jet plane Astrid... good capture... i like your signature splitting the horizon and the ocean....petersmile
this is very nice, Astrid. i cannot remember too many occasions where the glass was clean or the wing did not completely obstruct the view outside. Portland appears to have some industry going down there.
