That sums it up! Yesterday Wanganui Aero Club's CFI Jonny had a mission to collect a passenger from Nelson and fly her to Whanganui, and kindly offered me the spare seat. It was a fantastic flight - my first into Nelson - and I even got to have the controls for a while including crossing Cook Strait.
Rather than pick the photos for this blog myself I asked my lovely wife Sam to chose her favourites from the 300+ I took on the ground at each end and in the air. As always, all the photos can be found on Flickr: https://flic.kr/s/aHBqjzQrnt
