It's the Last Day of School. . .Here Comes Vacation Time!

The Spirit of Disneyland, an Alaska Airlines 737, seen from Olympic Sculpture Park

While walking through the Olympic Sculpture Park, we looked up and spied Alaska Airline's "The Spirit of Disneyland." It is one of two such themed Boeing 737s that travel the route to Orange County's Disneyland, which just celebrated its 50th anniversary. Aircraft are a very common sight in Seattle skies, but this is the first time I've spotted this brightly painted craft. It was following the route along the western bluffs that I have seen is generally taken by cargo planes such as UPS and DSL. What a cheerful sight on the evening of the last day of school. I bet it gave kids who might have seen it exciting ideas of how they might like to spend some of their summertime vacation!
