It Don't Get Much Better Then This.

A nice cool evening, the sea, the odd dolphin (not in picture) and a 747-200F passing 100 Feet over your head....... HEAVEN.

You forgot to mention the horrible evenings when it's 30 degrees, not one dolphin all day, and the 40 min. wait between every movement!

The only thing I can think of to make it better, is if you like fishing. I could probably camp at that spot then.

Well if you want bad Nick there was the day when Flyboy and I spent about one hour at 25R. It was about 32C, 95% and NO wind. The sweat was dripping of my fingers.

HORRIBLE !!

Nick, That's a great shot!!

HKGSpotter, you're going to be there on Sunday? I wish I could go as well. The weather this week looks much better than it has been over the last month or so. But I probably have to give it a miss this time cos I've got to go and support my colleagues at the Sedan chair race....
