The Mystery Tour: Clues 1,2 & 3

01 May

The mystery tour began this morning at 3 am when we got up and were ready to leave the house for the two hour drive to the Minneapolis airport.

Our flight departed at 7:00am this morning and arrived at our destination at 11:00am.

Clue #1

This morning when we left our home at 4:15 am my son had to scrap ice off his windshield before we could leave. It was a bone chilling 31 degrees.

Upon our arrival at the first stop in our mystery tour I saw this sight.

Clue #2

And this sight…

During our travels we happened upon this lovely sight. It is definitely not native to my home state of Minnesota.

Our travels this day began with two hours of driving in a car, three hours by plane, 5 minute train ride, a mile and a half of walking, two hours of a city bus ride and topped off with five more hours of driving by truck.

I will post more photos on Monday of leg two of the Mystery tour but I will leave you with Sunday evenings sunset.

      We were, but aren’t any longer 🙂 On the move again today. I figured the pictures from the airport would give someone a clue.

      Thanks Harrison. It is a business trip more than pleasure but always fun to get away for a few days.

    I agree with Nancy. It looked like the Orlando airport, and, of course, beautiful flowers like those in The City Beautiful. I suppose there are other airports and flowers that may look similar. Blessings to you, Jeanne…

      You and Nancy are correct. It was the Orlando airport! I love the pink flowers. I haven’t had time to find out their name yet.

        Here’s are some good leads on the identity of the flower:

        Hope your Mother’s Day has been AWESOME!

        It’s been a great day so far. All the kids made it home to have dinner together and I found cowslips today. Thanks for spreading the word about the flower. I looked for a while yesterday but no success.

    I haven’t been to the Orlando airport, but I’m guessing you’re in Florida because of the flight time. Hope you’re having a wonderful time!

      Orlando it is…Love the warm weather but didn’t stay long just a few hours in Orlando and then on the move to the next destination.
