Maine 2017

by on Nov.19, 2017, under Flying

Joyce and I flew to Maine for our 2017 lob­ster fix and a COPA fly-in at Bar Har­bor. We delayed our flight by a day and left Octo­ber 16th for Owls Head, Maine. We flew in per­fect weath­er to Delaware for lunch then over JFK with a great view of N.Y. City then on to Maine. Head winds the whole way so it was a long 8 hours in the air. We stayed at the Inn at Sun­rise Point, above Cam­den, which is one of our favorite places. We toured the area again and soaked in the beau­ti­ful Maine fall col­ors and coastal beau­ty as well as con­sumed great New Eng­land sea food. Joyce found a great wood­en carved mer­maid that will be per­fect for our cot­tage and of course they ship.

On Thurs­day we flew the 20 minute flight to Bar Har­bor to join the 40+ oth­er Cir­rus Own­ers and Pilots Asso­ci­a­tion (COPA) mem­bers for a fly-in. We spent a jol­ly three days in Bar Har­bor, din­ning togeth­er, tour­ing Cadil­lac Moun­tain and going out on the water to sail around the Bar Har­bor area, see old light hous­es and learn about the great his­to­ry of the area. The weath­er was per­fect, the fall col­ors were on full dis­play and social­iz­ing with fel­low pilots was the best. Rhon­da and Mike did an incred­i­ble job of orga­niz­ing the fly-in of over 20 Cir­rus air­craft, THANKS. On Sun­day we flew back to Hilton Head and sure enough we had a head wind the whole way. We tra­versed 12 states and only one had weath­er in one, our des­ti­na­tion, South Car­oli­na. We did an instru­ment approach into Hilton Head and end­ed a great week of fly­ing fun on a pos­i­tive note.
