This morning, we were hoping for a nice calm, sunny and warm day. And we got it. After breakfast, it will be time to head to the Quartzsite Desert RC Flyers flying field.
Awake at 8 o'clock, Yuma and I enjoyed the first morning with no wind and lots of sun. It will be near 70 this afternoon. We headed to the flying field at 10 o'clock. Our group consisted of me and Yuma in the Jeep and Tom and Deb in their Jeep. Celebrating the Dance.
Bill Richards is the President of the flying club and he was announcing the event and he and Patsy are also long time Blogger friends. It was great to be able to see them for the first time this winter. Bill has a blog, On Our Way and Patsy has a blog, Chillin' with Patsy.
We sat close to the field and watched the pros expertly fly their planes around the field way above our heads and landing in front of us. Some very expensive planes and I'm sure no one wanted to have their plane go down.
The charity flying event was over around noon and then Tom, Deb and me and Yuma went in to Quartzsite to stroll through the few remaining vendor tents left after the Big Tent event wrapped up.
Soon, Yuma and I were home lying in the sun and enjoying the beautiful afternoon. Had to move to the shade for awhile. I think I may have enough tan on my face to last awhile. Wouldn't want to get wrinkles at such a young age.😁Around 3 o'clock, we sat down for our Happy Hour. Deb and Riley, On a long and lonesome highway.... joined us. We talked for awhile and then headed home for dinner. So glad, the weather is warmer now, although, the forecast for next week doesn't look good. We'll take it while it is here.
The air show looks like a lot of fun. It takes some skill to fly those RC planes around. I'm glad it's finally warming up for you all there.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Dolly. They were fun to watch and I was glad to see Bill and Patsy again.Delete
Isn't it amazing what they can make those planes do? It's fun to watch them in action.ReplyDelete
Looks fun. It is a serious hobby for the pilots. They brought multiple planes to the event.Delete
Wow! Those planes are really cool and much bigger than I would of thought! Glad you got a nice day for it. Hope the weather sticks around for a little while.ReplyDelete
Thanks Steve. Many had wing spans of around 4 feet. Wouldn't want one to land on me. It would have been terrible if the event was called for winds.Delete
The event looked fun. I’m glad you folks all had a good time. Sorry we had to miss it. Maybe next year. Hopefully the weather keeps improving and stays good! I think we have had enough of the winter type winds and colds for this year.ReplyDelete
You are certainly right about the weather. We may act spoiled, but came a long way for good weather and we expect good weather.Delete
A nice day to enjoy some outdoor activities. Those big boy 'toys' look pretty darn expensive.ReplyDelete
You're right, Jeff. Not for the amateur pilot.Delete
Pictures are beautiful of the planes! Glad you and Yuma enjoyed! Glad you got to see Bill and Patsy!ReplyDelete
Thanks Shirley. It was a fun event. I was surprised at how many pictures I actually got of those speedy guys racing across the sky.Delete
I'm surpised Yuma wasn't disturbed by the planes. I had a dog that would go bananas if there was a kite in the air nearby. Birds didn't bother him, but he would go wild if he saw a kite.ReplyDelete
I was too. Yuma chases birds fling by. But he didn't even look up at the planes. Someone was racing a little battery run car around and Yuma ignored it too.Delete
You didn't think you were getting good pictures, Doug, but this post says you sure did! Nice collage too!ReplyDelete
