Falling Waters State Park

My friend and I went on an impromptu hike today to Florida's tallest waterfall. I guess there wasn't much water so it didn't really produce the expected reaction but it was such a great day to get outside and enjoy this perfect weather. Just driving around down here is always fun because it is so green and lush. Plus, Brittany has a Jeep and who doesn't like to drive topless? 

Falling Waters State Park

I love ferns!

The Camelbak wasn't necessary but it sure does make me look more hardcore.


Exposed embarrassing!

This little turtle was showing off for us.

Cotton fields on the drive home.

It's crazy that cotton grows like this!

I especially love flying over these fields. They are beautiful.

Family Day at the Flight Line

Corey drove all the way to LA (Lower Alabama) for my family day on the flight line. I was so excited to have him here that I flew my best flight so far. We took off like normal and the families met us at our stage field and watched as our buzz numbers flew by. We had great weather and I had so much fun. I flew first and then we shut down so our IP could meet our families and have lunch. Then he and my stick buddy left while I got to hang out with my baby and show him all around. 
Our Commander flew out a static display so I got to explain the controls, the start up procedure, all the maneuvers we're learning, etc. Corey was under the impression that we flew out to fields with mounds of dirt to land on so he was impressed that we actually had lanes to land on. There's also a pilot's lounge to hang out in while we're not flying. It's not nice, but it's better than a mound of dirt.

Steep approach

Autorotation (I think)

Action shot!

Meeting up with Corey :)

The static display

All my gear. Corey told me to look tough...

I was so happy to finally see my baby again!

I'm like a peacock! You gotta let me fly.

Sometimes I try to have fun and sometimes I succeed. Thanks to all the cool women I've met here in Alabama I get to have fun whenever I have the time. All About Art in Enterprise, AL offers a 2 hour painting class with everything provided. We had a good group going and sort of overtook the class. At least that's what the dirty looks from around the room led me to believe :)
It was peacock night so here are our renditions of the majestic bird.

The Boll Weevil is a hero here.

The setup.

I really didn't have enough time so I can't be held responsible for the final product :)

Pretty Peacocks.
