Celebrating Another Birthday In Style...

Our children surprised ex-RAF hubby with a ticket to the Museum of Flight ...

'The Museum holds one of the largest and most comprehensive air and space collections, containing millions of rare photographs and negatives, a world-class library, tens of thousands of artifacts, and over 150 rare aircraft and space vehicles.'

A few favourites of course...

And there is a healthy dose of wonder (on my part) as these lovely birds are so very light...

Of course, the crowning of the whole expedition was an additional opportunity to visit the Shuttle trainer...

3D option is a marvelous tool (even when you are  not aware you have selected it) and my Olympus allowed me to photograph both son and ex-RAF hubby without intruding on privacy...
(someone who shall remain nameless sported the biggest smile and probably would still be there if his quarter past eleven appointment had not eventually ended!)

In turn, I throughly enjoyed seeing how the Post used to be delivered around here...

Apparently, little has changed!

My favourite site included the WW1 exposition of course...

Even as a set, it created a fathom feeling...


  1. Oh vous avait de la chance de visitez cette expo!! Tres jolie avions!! Tres jolie fotos! :0)

    1. L'exposition est permanente au centre Boeing mais cela prend 2 ferries, et un long parcours pour y arriver pour nous, donc nous ne faisons pas cela tous les jours! L'occasion de l'aniversaire de mon epoux etait parfaite (avec son gateau chocolat bien sur!)
      Bonne soiree a toi aussi Masha et j'espere que tu te sens mieux!

  2. What a great way to celebrate a birthday for a airplane person, the beer fairy is one of those .
    Hope he enjoyed it, or maybe it was you, you didn't say.

    1. Merle, the birthday celebration was entirely for ex-RAF hubby I assure you and yes, he had a marvelous time!
      All the best Dear!

  3. What fun...looks perfect for your hubby! Happy Birthday to him!

  4. Diane, in turn, he says: Thank you kindly M'lady!


I love to share dreams and always enjoy meeting kindred spirits!
Thank you for stopping by!
