Flying with Carmela

I'll miss the consistency and convenience of California coastal flying.

The day was overcast, great for smooth consistent air not so much for photos. A trip over to Westlake, shows the cliff edging its way closer to the windowless church. Looks like it lost another lobe to its parking, just one unusable lobe remains. 

Camela joined me on her spiffy new sport 3.

I flew around and took in a few different angles. Here over Mussel rock.

The wind was southy and bouyant so the glide back to Funston put us pretty high.

Fun to go exploring the space over Daly city golf course.

Saying goodbye to Chris.

Although not in person. Chris died in a situation the confounds the best of us. Why was he there at devils slide, so low? He was a good pilot and knew better than what the situation appears on the surface... He was a good swimmer by accounts, he was seen in the water out of the glider. So many questions and no answers. Two weeks later Friends and Family were pulling together a ceremony. 

Three of us released Chris one final time to the wind, to become part of the nature he so enjoyed.
