Last week my husband and I took a flight up to Northern New Jersey. As I mentioned last time, if you have a pilot’s license and are qualified on the plane, you can rent an airplane. So that’s exactly what we did. It’s like renting a car except you rent a plane.
Throughout the years, LOLZ blog has taken many different turns about life and other random topics. Most recently, flying has seen its way into my life. Like going to diners, it’s a fun hobby that both my husband and I enjoy doing so it makes sense to blog about it. Since I’m not running much, I need something to talk about right?
This time, we decided to fly up to Pompton Plains, New Jersey. Neither of us had been to that general area of New Jersey, so we thought why not? We also wanted to check out the Pompton Queen Diner. It was recently ranked as one of the top diners in New Jersey, and I can see why! That deserves it’s own post for another day…
We flew out of Southern New Jersey and headed north along the Delaware Riverfront overlooking Philadelphia. We saw a prison from above which I thought the design was neat. Not neat enough that I would want to be behind bars though…
We flew over Princeton. It was so neat to see it from an aerial view. I thought I might even see some of my friends doing a track workout or something.
Next, we saw New York from afar. As you can see, there is a layer of smog there. For our next flight, we want to fly to either Long Island or somewhere out that direction. For security reasons, you aren’t able to fly too close to New York.
Once we landed in Pompton Plains, we headed to the Pompton Queen Diner, which was only a few miles away. In fact, we ended up walking back from the diner to the airport. It was a fun little adventure.
It was a beautiful walk back to the airport, and I’m glad we did.
I enjoy flying and checking out various places. Both my husband and I enjoy flying around and exploring new areas of the tristate area. I’m not sure where we will go next!
Incase you missed the Flight to Cape May.
Questions for you:
Have you ever flown in a private plane?
Do you have any recommendations of places to fly?
