20 States, 2 Countries, 5 weeks

The five week trip that Joe and I took in reliable N7542N was amazing.  The bird didn't have one hiccup and flew us across the USA and the Caribbean often in some pretty nasty and zero visibility weather.  In the USA we stopped in 20 states and saw and learned so much about our beautiful and vast country. In the Bahamas, we checked off a bucket list item by getting to swim with the pigs.  

I know it's often boring to look at other folks' vacation photos but I've added peppy music so this 13 minute movie is pretty easy to get through. I mean...swimming with pigs, you have got to see that!

As co-pilot my duties included programming the GPS and locating waypoints & airports on the charts. In five weeks we flew 53.8 hours and besides reading novels, I got in some creative time making a necklace and embellishing a white prefelt.  

Wire wrapped beads on chain with Roman glass, an old coin, yarn and threads as the pendant.

I embellished this prefelt by adding silk and wrapping thread around the wool and silk.
I used a needle and thread to add dimension to the wool and silk.
