Sunday Stills/ Controls, Blue Monday, Midweek Blues, Mellow Yellow AND Ruby Tuesday...Flying Like the Birds

 
 Click on photos to enlarge!
Gliders at Torrey Pines, San Diego, California USA
We watched in "awe" as these gliders took to the wind currents yesterday in the late afternoon.
Fascinating!

They have such amazing patience getting everything ready for safe sailing!

There were so many colors...

He's finally about ready to walk off that cliff...what a thrill!

Wow, I liked this green one!

...and, one hang-glider went out while we were there.

Awesome!

Haha! my birthday wish to do this (when I get the courage). I am sure, there is so much thrill! What a beautiful day to be out there, the sea looks so calm.

In the mean time, I will try to do the simulated sky diving at Universal Studios.

Always wanted to hang glide, still might. Nice take on the theme. Nice pictures too, like all the control lines in the one shot.

I like to go to the beach and see them fly. My daughter went once, she said the harness wasn't very comfortable on the thighs. So she stopped going.
