Flying, especially if you’re perched in the co-pilot’s seat, affords you some seriously breathtaking views.
I’m lucky to have flown our skies many times, and know that the scenes from up high can render one speechless.
We’ve seen the multitude of colors of the Caribbean Sea when flying over the water to the cayes, noting the various little off-cayes dotting the water here and there (some with names like “Cockroach”, “Bread & Butter”, “Mosquito” and “Man O War”…). If you’re lucky, you may even see a manatee, ray or dolphins frolicking in the clear blue.
But flying over the mainland? Oh, what a treasure trove of vistas that yields.
You bet I was beyond excited to check out the incredible views during my flight to Punta Gorda, Toledo! It was my first time traveling to the southernmost district by plane, and I could not wait to see it from above.
From winding rivers…
To peaks and valleys…
Tiny houses on large tracts of land (Ambergris Caye, why you so small?! Where’s my acreage?!)…
Land…green, green land…as far as the eye could see!
and closer…oh…whoops! We were landing!
Thanks Tropic Air, for letting me clamber to the co-pilot seat (seriously, best seat in the house) – those vistas I’ll carry in my mind forever!
