Well, I was amazed to find that conditions were miraculously good enough for us to at least launch and fly. And they were actually quite a bit better than that! Clouds were low, with bases consistently at 2,100 feet or so, and the direction was super horribly east, but the air was surprisingly smooth, and there were many gaps and blue holes between cloud banks. We climbed well above base, up to maybe 2,700 or so, and flitted around the tops of the clouds as the setting sun bathed them in its waning rays. It was a gorgeous moment, and I was happy to have James back in the sky to share it with me.
Welcome back, James! I look forward to many more flights with you in the near future.
