Well I headed down to Mnt. Woodside to see Jim Reich and try to secure my novice rating for paragliding. Despite almost everything going wrong it seems I passed. I botched my take off and could not get into my seat during the flight so I headed to the LZ and landed ok. We headed to Bridal as conditions where getting rough. I spent the next hour and a half kiting. At 5 pm I had to head home. I was feeling like I had screwed it all up. But atlas Jim emailed saying I had passed.

During our beach walk we found this fellow trying out his buddies Acro Kite. The design was very simular to a paragliding wing. The little wing had a lot of power and was very fast. It made a wild buzzing sound when it was pushed into turns. VERY COOL!
Well it is holiday time again and our travels took us to the Island to see family. My brother Shane was able to get out to Dad's so we went over to see him. It was good to see him and Dad and Carol. We did a beach walk at Parkville Beach and then a stop at the Shady Rest, my old work place.
