As you might guess, no training today. The plane was is fully serviceable condition (that's different to saying that everything was perfect), and the flying was fantastic. Just above the cloud layer, but still in sight of terra firma. Destination Roserrow, Cornwall. It's a holiday complex, golf club, heath centre and a mile from the beach. We hit the beach, paddled in the sea, ate a delightful lunch (it takes a lot to impress me), and flew home. We'll go back. This evening was a wine tasting hosted by Tony & Tom Laithwaite. I'm not sober.
Cracking morning here. With a bit of luck I'm going flying, taking the wife and D2 down to Cornwall for the day. It all depends if the plane is in full working order. It was OK at the weekend, but these old machines seem to have a life of their own. Pilot to parachitist "You won't find me jumping out of a perfectly serviceable aeroplane". Parachutist to pilot "I've yet to come across one".
Anyway, the bike has cost me more in parts recently. 2 years and 3000 miles, replace chain block, chain, front gear changer. Good job I had the confidence to set it all up myself. Chance to clean and grease bearings too. She's humming nicely now.
