Sweet dreams Twist!
Enjoy your dinner and sweet dreams, Twist!
I have these across the street from me....I think goats might be okay....
No leaping here. I'm more of a hopper. For me, faith is carefully considered and rationally defended. I admire people who can leap. It's just not in my genetic make up. Although, I did jump off a cliff to go hang gliding 3 times. Took weeks of watching, questioning, and analyzing the pilot and the process before I tried it. It was absolutely amazing! 3rd time I lost confidence in the pilot's judgement. No more jumping.
Since hopping came up....
This is what I did, but flying tandem was not allowed at Fort Funston back then, so we had to take off about a half mile away to the south. The wind blows in off the ocean, shoots up the cliff face and keeps the gliders aloft. Then you go back and forth along the cliff.
This one is long, but you can get the idea in a minute or two.
The day I went looked more like this, typical gloomy summer in San Francisco. There was fog forming as the wind rose up the cliff and I watched the top of a hawk as it flew below. Your hands get really cold.
This is a pretty day and shows the housing subdivision where we took off. We didn't have music, though.
The gliding community is very small. Everyone knows someone who has died doing it. The other two flights I took were at different locations. 2nd one made me start to question, and 3rd flight confirmed, that my pilot friend was lacking judgement. Or was willing to take huge risks. Either way, after the 3rd time, I quit while I was ahead. And alive.
Wishing you are very brave, far more than me. I bet it was a truly amazing experience!!
I would love to have a go at something like that but I'm chicken and I mean a BIG one!!
Morning, York! It's a fine line between brave and dumb sometimes.
How's your morning? Going riding?
I've got to shoot and go do Harry horse, I'm not looking forward to it, it's chucking it down with rain again
My yard is flooding and it's just so miserable out there, a bigger coat is certainly in order today!!
In this weather wishing I'm afraid I'm not riding this morning, both me and Harry are fair weather riders. Might go this aft if it brightens up a bit!!
I'm my book you are brave wishing!!
