On the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers flying for the first time, I took a couple hours out of the day to fly again with my friend John. (See also: this story.) We took up a Piper Archer from West Valley Flying Club (which I joined earlier in the week so I can start power training) and flew over to Half Moon Bay.

After landing there, we flew up and down the coast a bit before heading back to Palo Alto. We flew a bit over an hour and it was a great (very clear and calm) day for it. I took some pictures of the sights.

It was a good day to break up the day. And, somehow, it wouldn't have felt right not to fly today.
