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.
