Today did NOT start out well. I asked Melon Man to call me at 4 a.m. to make sure I was up and getting ready. He forgot.
My alarm went off at 4:30 a.m. but I was so tired that I accidentally turned it off and promptly fell back to sleep.
|Clouds just dotting the sky.|
|A cloud shooting up out of the rest.|
|A little "mountain" of a cloud...|
|I thought this was interesting...it looks like a crack in the ground covered in snow.|
|This one too! (Well, it's actually the same "crack", just a better picture of it.)|
|A growing, big billowing cloud...|
|What an interesting site...it looked like a bunch of dotted salt pits.|
|I love looking down at farmland. It's always so very interesting to see it all plotted out in squares....|
|...or circles....aren't those interesting?!?!|
Soon it was time for lunch. I actually tried hummus for the first time ever. It was not something I would "crave" or choose to buy, but I 'might' have a little some other time.
|These houses were huge! And the swimming pools were everywhere too. I guess the saying about everything in Texas being bigger is true!|
|I love the SkyLink train. It's a great way to get back and forth between terminals....which I did a lot of this time due to my layover. I just rode around and around while I tried to recover from everything else lately.|
|I just had to take a picture of this escalator. It was probably the longest escalator I have ever seen. It seemed like the escalator to heaven.|
|Another one of my "interesting things I saw at the airport" series....a Catholic priest watching CNN. I bet he was hot in that robe. I would have been!|
|Something else that's big in Texas....the hair.|
|I had dinner at this Mexican cantina in the airport. This was pretty tasty overall, but the shrimp was probably the best I have EVER had. There was some sort of seasoning/spice on it that just made it water in your mouth.|
|As we left the Dallas area, I couldn't help but take this picture of the sun radiating off of this lake. Too bad there was window glare...but it's still a cool picture!|
|The long walk down the hotel hallway. My room is almost all the way down on the left.|
We finally landed in Columbus around 11:30 p.m. I was SO tired. I must have looked like death because the hotel staff just looked at me with pity. I was so hot and sweaty from the heat and humidity. I'd quickly put my hair up in a clippy but strands of it were falling out everywhere. I hauled my camera bag, laptop, and two fully loaded suitcases into the elevator and then down this long hallway to my room, where I quickly unpacked and crawled into bed. What a LONG day it was. Ah...sleep...
