you may recognise the same place with the horse and sheep pics.. here.

Ant is the friend whom Groz landed his rev on :)
It's about and 1.5 hours from us so don't get to visit it that often.



It really looks beautiful there, someday maybe I'll be lucky enough to fly there. If I'm really lucky, my goal is to meet up with all of you wonderful people and fly your favorite spots. Pretty cool goal...if I do say so, myself :kid_content: .

Gonna hold ya to it. Mean time, I'm looking forward to next Sunday's get together on "your" beach.



So am I... it should be a great time. Look at the photo of my spot... and you can see the New York skyline...in the distance :kid_smartass: . It is much nicer on a clear day; especially after a front blows through.

Yeah, that appeared just after Christmas! There was a lot of local oppositon apparently cos it 'spoils the view'.

Heading up again tomorrow with any luck!

Have fun...it's a pretty place. Take a moment to enjoy the view.

Unfortunately I don't have a camera with me, so have had to raid one of our PR shots. But here is my current site, just up from the lighthouse. Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Sorry the boat gets in the way of the view:

Yes, when I built them the brief I gave the naval architect was to keep a Volvo in mind as he drew them. I of course meant a Volvo 70', but he thought I meant a Volvo Estate.



(For those who don't know, a Volvo 70' is a fairly quick and very expensive racing yacht. Whereas a Volvo estate is something entirely different)

That explains it all - I was wondering how to fix the roof rack on top.

That's a great shot (ok, it would have been better with a Canon Rebel XT or something similar :kid_smartass: )...and looks like a great place to fly.

How dare that "floating thing" take away from the beautiful light house :sq_wink: . Seriously, she's a real beauty. :kid_content:

Great tails Jonesey very manly :lol:

That is a very different view to the one we saw when we flew at Butser last year.
