Many pilots crossed to Kualoa and back, and parts in between. There were nice thermals rising up through that chilly brisk flow, leaning steeply but definitely worth some turns. There were some nice thermals way out over the water too. On these cool north days that always seems to be the case! I topped out at 3,200 feet or so but never came close to the clouds. Also pretty typical for these north days. And there was a chilly gray haze obscuring our visibility. Another north day hallmark.
Thanks to Larry and Pete for the refreshing beverages. I was surprised to receive a disfiguring injury to my nose and occipital ridge while opening one. Lucky I wasn't blinded! I either have to wear safety goggles or just turn away next time!
Nice to be back here after a month off. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait a month for the next good day out here!
