Default What a perfect day looks like

This was from a few weeks ago on a gorgeous Southern California day after the rains cleared away all the smog/ haze that's typically in the LA basin. We woke up to brilliant blue skies, scattered with fluffy white clouds. I wanted to go flying. My wife wanted to go hiking. I said, why not do both? So we did! But not before I went up first by myself to do one of my favorite things.

Great shots on a beautiful day, much appreciated by this old SOCAL guy. You even managed to work the Queen Mary and old Spruce Goose display hangar (geodedic dome) in the harbor shot. Did my share of T&Gs at CPM. Looks good from the air.
Thanks for sharing!
