Flying the Dumps

We are out in California for the holidays, enjoying the warm weather and getting outside a lot.  There's snow on the ground back in Utah so we are lucky to be in the sunshine.  

The day after the Woodside 50k, Jim and I were both walking a little stiffly but headed up to the central coast near San Francisco.   The Dumps is a popular coastal site, sometimes known as Mussel Rock Park where the flying site is located.   Local pilots were showing up as we arrived, so we knew it was looking like a good day!

We got a thorough site briefing from a friend, and waited quite a while in calm winds before it was lifty enough to launch.  Once in the air, I was high really quickly, and snapped a few photos of myself with the Golden gate in the background!   It was really nice flying along the ocean and great views of San Francisco and the coastline.

Within minutes of Jim launching, tho, the winds came up and forced everyone to land.
Oh, well.  
Where to fly next?

Getting a glimpse of the Golden Gate...it's really, really small and blurry in my photo, tho :(
