Fly Over

We learned the difference between a fly-in and a fly-out: A fly-in is where people fly their assorted collection of people and airplanes to a destination. An example of a fly-out is where several airplane loads of people flew to the Sierra foothills for much merriment at Lynne and Ken’s unusual piece of paradise. Since we had Tripp parked at Oakland for our Whimsy at Mt. Tam. & SF, we flew over to join the gang. On the way I liked this scene of an open shelter in the rolling green hills. In such an overload of green hues, my eye shelters on that rusty red roof.

Then on to Pine Mountain Lake (E45), where people have built their dream homes with two “garages” each: one for their car(s) and one for their plane(s). Several of the roads double as taxiways residents use for driving to town or getting their airplanes to and from the runway. These are happy aviators, and we’re very happy to join them.
