Last Saturday a group of us took Eureka to Santa Cruz to check out what would make the best routing for a new flight offering. We didn't blog it, mainly because Brian and I live in the Santa Cruz mountains and we were too busy looking for our house and familiar landmarks! However Wallace Baine from the Santa Cruz Sentinel was with us and he describes it better than I could. The sight of the boardwalk was amazing, and even though we had fog and some smoke, the views were tremendous. As Wallace said,
"This is the kind of flying that opens doors in your senses and gives you the thrill of seeing your place in the world -- your entire life even -- from the distance of insight. You're the flea finally seeing the dog."
Santa Cruz is a two hour adventure from Moffett Field.
