After being more or less confined to a chair with a walking cast on and not being allowed to go out and play for the last six weeks, I finally got the OK to resume normal activity so I made a bee line for HDV this morning!

I was able to do the maiden flight on a micro Dehavilland DHC-2 Beaver floatplane. I brought my PT boat and was able to demo the sound system but not able to run it in the water.

Also to celebrate my healing I brought my portable grill and made hot dogs for everyone.

Not as many Violator's regulars were in attendance today. Probably out of town for the three day weekend. But those that were there had a great day. Lake was uncrowded, while the rest of the park was packed. Weather was blustery and very enjoyable.

Here are some "People" shots, and my cookout table.

While I was looking around with my camera I spotted an LAFD chopper dropping water way over yonder.
