Leaving on a jet plane

Being able to print a boarding pass at home is certainly a big change from the sheaf of papers we had to have in hand when we did a similar trip in the mid-80s. But of course then there was only minimal airport security, and it was still possible to catch a flight minutes before the gate closed...

Flight 189 to Vancouver being prepared at Ottawa airport.

We left Ottawa a bit behind schedule and managed to see some dim lights at Spiritwood as we gained altitude over the Ottawa River. Happily, it was an uneventful flight to Vancouver.
