Flight Journal, [DATE] The flight up here from the heliport was pretty scenic at this time of year. The leaves are beginning to peak and the reds, yellows, and oranges along the ridges are really spectacular. We took off from the central heliport in downtown Manhattan around 2 PM and we were enjoying schooners of beer and fresh sweet and buttery treats on the wharf by 6:00! We’ve been looking forward to this pretty simple mission as we’re ready for some cooler weather and awesome scenery. I love the rocky coastline here and the winding road to the top of the mountain (with an automotive name) will provide the eyes with some pretty amazing leaf-popping. I just hope we don’t get behind a tourist bus! We’re hoping for a clear day atop the mountain as we’ve heard you can see foreign soil sometimes. This area is known for windstorms and even a hurricane on occasion and I’m sure we’ll think about Hurricane Bill’s recent pass-by and the tragedy here as we make our way to our mission. One thing for sure, when this mission is over, you can find us soaking up some sun lying on the grass near the pond and enjoying some of the famous tea and popovers in this beautiful spot, nationally preserved now, but long ago discovered by “Cajun” folk.
THE MOJO CHALLENGE
Our rescue plan is to reacquaint our client with the beauty of her surroundings. We’ll point out some of the natural elements that may serve to jumpstart her mojo. The REDS, YELLOWS, GOLDS, ORANGES, COPPERS, AND BROWNS alone should do the trick. We’ll suggest that she use a combination of at least THREE of these colors and utilize some ELEMENTS FROM NATURE in designing her card or scrapbook layout. The one stipulation we’ll insist on is that her design carry a CHEERFUL OR UPLIFTING SENTIMENT. If you’d like to help us with our mission, please provide us with a link to your creation in the Comments section. If you upload to an online gallery please use RESQ18 for your keyword, label, or tag! Don't forget to guess the location!
