Slow going

The weather has been so beautiful lately, beckoning me to enjoy the sunshine and spring flowers. And that means little progress on my projects.  

I gave the brown and blue tote bag to my mother for Mother's Day. I finished two more rows of Blueberry Hill / Jamestown Landing.  I sewed 8 blocks for Celtic Solstice. Slow and steady wins the race, right?  The best thing is that I resisted the urge to embark on a new quilting project, opting for quickie bags to get my fix. So while my list of projects did not diminish, it didn't get any longer. I'll take that as success.

In the meantime, I keep finding lots of different places I want to fly. Here's my wish list:
1. Bar Harbor / Acadia National Park in Maine  
2. Creve Coeur Airport in St. Louis, Missouri (will go there this summer!)
3. Oklahoma to visit my family (planning to go this summer)
4. Corning, New York area to visit the Glenn Curtiss Museum (Curtiss is the real aviation genius)
5. Kitty Hawk, North Carolina (been there, but want to return with my family)
6. Ozarks in Arkansas (again, been there but want to return with family)
7. Lake Tahoe (original goal for when I get my instrument rating)

Do you have any other suggestions for fly-in vacation spots?  I've been to Williamsburg many times, so need to visit other places. Remember I live on the east coast, so Lake Tahoe is quite a hike. It would be really cool to fly to Alaska (yeah, I intended the joke). Last summer during our trip to Kentucky, I met a guy who flew all the way from Alaska in his Cessna 170. That's a LONG haul!
