Wordless Wednesday: Plane landing over Boston Harbor

If you’ve ever flown into Boston’s Logan Airport, odds are you’ve approached the airport from Boston Harbor and landed on the runway that runs into the sea. Every time we approached from that direction, I could never quite believe that the ground would appear in time to catch the airplane before we all drowned.

Before we moved last month, my friend Victoria and I went on a whale watching trip. While we were still in Boston Harbor, we caught sight of a plane landing at Logan Airport.  Turns out that landing is just as terrifying when viewed from a boat.

What’s Wordless Wednesday?

Recently I discovered Wordless Wednesdays through the blog, 5 Minutes for Mom. Basically, on Wednesdays all around the Internet, bloggers post their favorite photos, ideally without any words to accompany them, but often with 1-2 sentences of context. I’m not a photo-blogger. I’m more of a word girl, so I thought Wordless Wednesday would be fun.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    Driving into O’Hare in Chicago, you drive under the runway. It’s kind of freaky seeing a jet flying over the road. In Las Vegas, I drive to work along the end of the McCarran runway as planes come in for a landing right above me along Eastern Ave. Of course, I was in the Air Force for 24 years so I’m used to being around planes, even though I’m not crazy about flying!
