♬...On the way to Cape May....♬
I sang that song every Friday when they played it on Oldies 98 as I drove to my airport project in Cape May. It's a catchy little ditty. Now..."sing it till you learn it!"
|Ferry leaving Lewes|
This mornings flight to Cape May was going to be the start of a full flying day. After meeting up with friends Dave and Bob, Mary and I were going to fly to Wilmington. Mary didn't feel well so I made the solo breakfast run across the Delaware Bay.

I started to let down for the coast and aligned myself for a straight in runway one. As I dropped below 2,000 somebody put a quarter in the bumpy airplane ride machine. It was a pain bumping along but short lived as I crossed the fence and settled below the tree line. With some rudder correction I made a nice landing and taxied clear.

I taxied out number two for departure. When it was my turn to shine 08Romeo once again climbed out, enjoying the cool air. I pointed 08Romeo for the Cape May ferry terminal and built up some altitude. I crossed while topping out my climb at six thousand then nosed over and made for the Delaware shore line in Lewes. I headed over to my job site and snapped a few shots to document the work phases the turned 08Romeo for home.

I secured 08Romeo and topped off the tanks for the flight to Ocracoke North Carolina tomorrow morning. I am once again feeling proficient at flight, instrument flight is another story.
