Today was a highlight of my holiday. Bruce, Vale and I strapped ourselves into a Cessna 172 (not so squeezy for us big types) and went on an hour long scenic flight across the Cape Range to the Indian Ocean, up to the tip of North West Cape and then down over town and back to the Learmonth light aircraft strip.

Fantastic, but the 712 isn't a very good photographic platform! It's cramped, reflections galore and the strut gets in the way of shots. But, I suppose I can't complain for $143, can I?
