New York - From the air

The last weekend of September I went to upstate New York for my friend Tracy's wedding. I have never been to New York so I was very excited for this trip. I had a layover at JFK airport in New York City, my first visit. I was delighted as we started our approach to see the sun just starting to wake up, over the famous city.
Due to time all I saw of NYC was the airport. I had a short layover to my final destination Syracuse, NY at take off I was delighted to see that the beautiful sunrise was not finished quite yet. How amazing is the sun over the Atlantic Ocean. Speaking of the ocean as we were approaching the city we hit a bit of turbulence and it dawned on me "perhaps I should have payed attention to the water landing talk."
Two days later I was headed home and happened to land at sunset ( I wish I could say I planned these extra pretty flights, but it was all luck.) I do have to admit though I was nervous about flying for the first time. I worried about weather or not my flight would be safe from crazies? Would we land and take off safely? Upon landing right as we hit that bit of turbulence I even grabbed my jewelry box just in case we had a water landing I was not letting the pearls sink to the bottom of the ocean. I felt very blessed to be distracted from my fear with these amazing views, and beautiful glimpses of the sun.
Over the next few days I will be posting a theme of special moments from my trip including the wedding, fall, and apple picking. I hope I can share a bit of the fun I had, seeing sites and experiences that I ave not had living in the southwest.
