Kiting with no hands

Ground handling or kiting is an important step to becoming a skillful pilot.  It's a prerequisite in order to acquire the proper aptitude and flying competence to be rated as a USHPA "P2" level pilot.  I had my ground handling exercises by Ocean Beach in California with my instructor Jeff Greenbaum of Airtime San  Francisco.  What fun that was.  Here he is showing me how to kite with no hands.

Missing my caddie

Golfing in the Philippines spoils us.  Caddies are mandatory with every game.  Until you golf in North America and get a reality check.  Carry your own bag, figure out your own yardage, wipe your own clubs and read your own putts.

But golf we must, and golf we shall.

Half moon Bay Golf

One of the prettiest courses in the San Francisco Bay area is at Half moon Bay. There's a breathaking view of the ocean as seen on the 18th hole in this picture.  When I played this course I couldn't concentrate on my game as I was itching to take pictures the whole time. Cypress trees and dogleg fairways make for  a landscape that is picture perfect on every hole.

Finish your round with a nice bubbly or roast marshmallows and make s'mores by the fire pit while waiting for the most fantastic view of the sunset.
