yesterday we went for a ride down past Simon's Town........wow, this is an awesome part of the earth.
There was a bend in the road, that gave the south wind a slope face.......Smitswinkel Bay.......this wind had come all the way from the South Pole.......
so I couldnt resist and pitched the Prairie Dog out into the bay......

J, I made several landing attempts, the wind was really gusty near the slope, thought I would bring it into the bushes ala Maitlands. I was climbing left to right up the slope, when the wind slammed me around a bush and right between two of the white stone markers and onto the road, just walked over and picked it up......sometimes its better to be lucky than good

wind was blowing right into town in Hout Bay, I think it needs to be more westerly for it to work there. I did recognize the area from some of the pics from the TOSS blog.
