Yesterday was a lovely sunny day with light easterlies, so the flying was thermal, and various people took to the air to try going round in circles for a change. Others set out in different directions to explore the countryside. One party discovered Aboyne Castle, an imposing building dating from the 17th century. Others set off for Tomintoul along a dramatic road over moorland and past the ski runs of the Lecht. Some went to the Whisky Castle and came away with a supply of the produce. Others went for a walk around the Glenlivet estate.
In the evening we went to the Black Faced Sheep in Aboyne for an excellent buffet dinner.
Today we have more sunshine and easterlies but we hope for the wind to go southerly soon and then we will be back in the wave.
