December in Seattle means changeable weather, among other things. It means snow in the Cascades and Olympics. It means Santa is water-skiing on Lake Washington. It means downtown is busy with shoppers. (I hope somebody’s going to the pet store for presents!)
And the Space Needle, looming above Lake Union, is all lit up for the holidays!
We’re still flying here at Seattle Seaplanes over the holidays. Cold, dry winter days are the best conditions – the mountains show up crisply with their blanket of freshly-fallen snow. The water sparkles, and the air is still.
But, in case it’s rainy, don’t let that deter you from the idea of a flight. It’s still a great day to fly, and we’ll be happy to take you up!
Gift certificates come in handy at any time of the year – just call or shoot us an email, and we’ll be happy to help you out.
We’ve taken the opportunity of a somewhat quieter time to get some work done on some of the airplanes. One of them got a new propeller – here’s a study in just how long a propeller is, relative to a Doberman and his toy orange bone!
And, along with everyone else, my friend Kareen and I got into the holiday spirit this week! She works here on the weekend, so stop by sometime to say Hi!
So, from all of us here at Seattle Seaplanes, we wish you Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Happy Holidays to all!
Cheers, Toby James
