18/05/2014 Blackheath

Posted by Felix Mottram, 18 May 2014 · 123 views

In contrast to last Sunday today was a ‘full on’ summer’s day on Blackheath.  We arrived soon after 10:00am and I suggested that this might be the one and only summer Sunday here for 2014. <grins>  The Dandylion and Plaintain heads have sprung up over the week just to add to the amusement or irritation level as the case may be.
 
It was a typical summer Blackheath breeze, as well, with plenty of thermal activity around the basic SE direction.  Green Race in the full 1.5 sail was just about OK but there were plenty of lulls where the Diamond rods would have been better.
 
After many years of wearing prescription glasses I finally got around to getting photochromic lenses which arrived this week.  Today was my first opportunity to ‘test drive’ them on the kite field so it was ironic to be flying with our backs to the sun… Still the comfort factor on a very bright morning was quite considerable.  Can’t think why I had not done this before!
