Two posts in succession is a bit greedy, but I like this one, taken yesterday, flying 'my' beloved Jodel in the French countryside....Saint Foy La Grande (LFDF), near Bergerac. A lovely club in the middle of fields and woodland, with the Dordogne nearby. Watch out for wild boars on the runway!
There's an excellent restaurant at the airfield.
Blueberry picking at the waterfalls with my daughter, in northern Ontario today...
A variation on the hundred dollar hamburger!
