In February we went to Costa Rica. The first leg for the air travel portion starts in Boston, at Logan Airport. Whenever we make this trip it seems to snow. It wasn’t too much this time.

BOS on a snowy morning. 

Once emplaned, the window view showed three ways of getting around.

By air, by wheel, by foot.

De-icing was needed.

The de-icer contraption is well-named.

Green means good to go. 

Turbine sounds, bumpy motion, colored lights —

All add to the anticipation for taketoff.

Before long, grays give way to blues and whites.

Rhythms of cloud and wing.

South we go, where warm air behaves differently than cold.

A solitary cumulus wafts over shoals. 

We cruise over Cuba’s Cayo Coco causeway.

We descend.

Flaps bump down.

Noise increases.

In the seats in front of us.

Kindly siblings clasp hands.
