at 7,000 feet. It was an easy flight, with a 15 knot headwind at KFXE blowing right down runway 08 giving me a chance for short, smooth landing.
I’d been to KFXE several times before in my Archer II enroute to the Bahamas (in 2004) and the Cayman Islands (via Key West) in 2005
I’m treating myself to a hotel overlooking the beach for New Year’s Eve. It’s finally warm, the sun is shining and the ocean has a parade of cargo ships and cruise ships coming and going from the port adding motion to the scenery. Like always, the Ft. Lauderdale beach promenade is full of people, some on the sand, some just strolling along the sidewalks on either side of the A1A beach highway.
I looked at my flight log for this trip – I’m already about 30% of the way to Antarctica, but still on familiar ground so it doesn’t seem like I've gone far at all. No flying tomorrow, a day off, then January 2 on to Providenciales (Provo for short) in the Turks and Caicos, definitely new territory for me.
