We finally saddled up for home and 08Rome was ready to go. Two blades and she was back to her normal purrrrr. Winds were gusting but pretty much right down runway two zero. We were off in a hurry and climbing out to follow up the coast. I wanted to take a few shots of the Indian river inlet bridge but instead turned to look for the RV Park. It was time to point 08Romeo north and get on home. I added power to run at 2500 rpm and leaned to save some fuel. I didn't bother with flight following on the way home but did have Dover Approach tuned in for updates on local traffic while we listened to some country music.
I contacted Wilmington and acknowledged the enter left down wind for one niner report midfield. Base to final with a bumpy landing approach with the forty five degree cross wind gusting 18 knots. Right main wheel down, wow feel the wind, left main down with the nose quickly following. Knocked off some rust today and I feel more proficient for it. Hope to get in the air again soon...in the next week or two!
