What a totally unique Mother's Day present! This shot and the one below are both stunning. I'm sure you felt more and more confident in your pilot as the flight went on. I was driven by my son for the first time this week and quickly forgot that he hasn't passed his test yet. In the UK you can't get a provisional driving licence until age 18 now (most cars are stick shift, so perhaps that influences it, but the age has been raised recently to try to reduce fatalities caused by very young - usually male - new drivers). Can teenagers drive at age 14 in California? It would seem strange to be flying and not driving, but I suppose with an instructor also at the controls in a plane there's more security than on the ground in a car.

It's really funny to see all the places described in your posts from an aerial view. Any shot of the 'crew'?

The last time I was in the area this is where I was. I walked that path (wild bees have set up camp along with a feral cat community) to the beach and headed towards the right. Some interesting homes stretching up hillsides. Packed up and headed towards Abalone Cove area and was greeted by some of the most spectacular coastline.

Oh man, I spent many a summer day swimming there.. I also remember the ramp to the beach being treacherous (of course, I was eensie and running at full speed).

"Thanks for the memories.." ;o)
