High Hopes in the French Alps


we’d just arrived, one of the Tandems flying

We flew today, and lovely it was too! That was before the congestus accumulated … we didn’t go out until around 2.30 and when we arrived, there were a couple of Tandems doing the business.

It was nice and quiet and we had a good afternoons float and fly around, playing with speed bar’s and checking out our glide differences… lots of fun, needless to say the heavier person, had the greater advantage, as always! Hopefully more of the same tomorrow 🙂 It did overdevelop though with the cloud thickening and darkening. We’re home now, just waiting for the storm to erupt… although it might all just turn out to be a bit of a lamb, and simply disperse…
