Sunset over Florence
A view of our last sunset over the Florence skyline from our hotel. It is bittersweet. It's time for our adventure to end now. It was amazing and wonderful. What a way to celebrate our anniversary and my 50th Birthday! And now it is time for us to head home. We made our way to the tiny Florence airport on a quiet taxi ride in the morning. We tried to check in 3 hours before our flight like good travelers. They would not check us in and said we were too early! They went for their coffee break and told us to wait another hour. What else to do but have another cappuccino...the last one in Italy overlooking the hills and the airport.
Ah...terra firma...HOME at last! Never have I been so glad to see my Space Needle and Mt. Rainier as we flew in over the beautiful waterways of the Pacific Northwest. There's no place like home.
