From 22,000 feet

I took a rather earlier flight than usual, and the sky was clear, so I had a fabulous view out of the window of the plane.

We flew just north of Mersea Island, and I was on the starboard side. Odd to see a place I'm somewhat familiar with from such a radical angle.

We were too far north to see much of London. I spotted Canary Wharf, and i think I spotted Tower Bridge. But that was about it.

Good view of the Channel, too. My God, it's like the M25 down there! Well, OK, perhaps not that bad, but those ships are a lot harder to stop, and a lot harder to steer. I'm surprised that there aren't more collisions.
