Finally Flying – Skywatch
Happy Skywatch Friday. And an especially happy New Years to all my skywatch friends. This has been a fun thing for me this year – and I appreciate your kind visits and comments.
The weather finally cooperated on Sunday. My brother checked the weather and deemed it acceptable for flying. And really, it was perfect. I won’t spill all the fun beans on one post, but here were the highlights.
There’s my pond . . . that little puddle near the tree line. Pretty wild, huh? And the barns look like Monopoly houses. This was so much fun.
When we weren’t farming we used to spend LOTS of time here – at the lake. The water is low because the lake is used to generate electricity in the winter time. During the summer it fills up (provided there is not a drought) and it’s a wonderful play place. The dock nearest the center of the picture is the family lake house. We all share it – and can play on the water any time we want. It’s about 45 minutes away from where we live (by windy roads).
This characterizes the area pretty well – lots of rolling hills/mountains. Very little is cleared.
I loved being in the plane – my brother is an amazing pilot who was very generous with his time and resources.
Hope your skies are clear and your 2009 is beautiful. You can see other skies from all over the world by visiting here.
