Aboyne day 2

Last night's roast beef dinner was a great success, Jim ably assisted by his sous chefs Denis, Barry and Jeremy. The whisky that Glyn brought along may have been the reason why Jim had a lie in, or maybe it was just tiredness after his flight yesterday - which wasn't a Diamond after all, for a number of reasons.

Today was a mix of weak wave and thermals, and a few spots of rain. Depending when you launched you got a sleigh ride, a wave flight or some thermal practice. First off was 315 with Mike and Richard, they wandered up the valley to Ballater in wave. Then Mike flew with Rolf, and then Arne. Meanwhile Roland had a quick trip in 987 and Jane 118 did some thermalling. 315 had another trip with Mike and Chris, and Richard flew 318. 208 (Jim and Bob) and JDV (Barry and Jeremy) also had excursions.

Tonight Jim is again cooking, this time Italian, and Rolf has also disappeared so we may be getting something stupendous for dessert.
