It was a very dark and cold journey that Gail and I made this morning to the East Midlands Airport. We left home at a ridiculous hour and at minus 6*c to catch an early flight to Glasgow, as we are attending the wedding of one of Gails' nephews. We had thought about driving there, but it would take all day. And with the high price of fuel that it is at the moment, flying was a viable option. Also of course this meant more time to spend in Scotland's cultural capital.
Here is a shot of the sun coming up whilst we were airbourne. The flight itself only took about an hour, but was delayed as the ground staff were busy with de-icer and a scraper in an atempt to make the plane airworthy.
Glasgow seems to be a very cosmopolitan city with plenty of things to see and do. We are only here for three days. So we may have to come up again sometime to take in more of the sights.
