Alexandra Leaving

(“Alexandra Leaving” is a Leonard Cohen song – one that he sang last night. Sigh.)

I took Alekka to Heathrow this morning. She is off to spend the rest of her summer in Oregon with her sister and other assorted siblings and friends.

First thing you need for a big adventure – a new pair of traveling shoes

She was a little nervous about the trip – her first time traveling alone – but I’m confident she’ll do just fine and it will be a great experience for her.

Wolfy and Balto are ready to go

As we entered the airport from the train station, a young woman with red hair walking toward us glanced our way, then away. Alekka murmured…  “Mom…  that was Amy Pond.”  Now if that’s not a good travel omen, I don’t know what is.

Alekka gleefully texting everyone she knows about the airport sighting. A true Doctor Who fan, she’s even wearing her Tardis shirt.
