Unexpected Mini Adventure
Posted on June 28, 2019
Mini adventure? Micro adventure maybe? Haha. Yesterday was my day off. I had plans. Nothing big. Laundry and the like. Maybe take my daughter out for a little kayaking on a local river. But my plans changed when I saw a Facebook post. The Thunderbirds, who were in the area for an airshow in Traverse City, were going to be doing a flyby, at the Mackinac Bridge. The Mackinac Bridge is quite a sight to behold on it’s own. But add in a fly-by with the Thunderbirds? Since I live only 45 minutes away, I couldn’t pass up that photographic opportunity. Plus, I had never seen the Thunderbirds before! So, I rushed my daughter out the door. Parking was a bear, but we were able to find the perfect place to watch. We dipped our toes in the water of Lake Huron and skipped rocks while we waited. It really was a short appearance. I think they flew around for 5-10 minutes, but guys! It was pretty freaking cool! I wanted to share with you the photos I came home with, from our little jaunt:
Have you seen a Thunderbirds airshow? Or maybe the Blue Angels? Tell me all about it in the comments! Where did you see them? When did you see them?
