with rumbling tummies we took off again and headed for the Cornish coast around
Bude. We flew up the coast around Hartland Point with great views of Lundy
Island. An airstrip we must visit later. Then on past Clovelly,
Bideford, Barnstaple with great views of Chivenor runways. Then as a
special treat past Croyde Bay the home of many childhood summer camping and
later caravanning holidays. On past Woolacombe, Ilfracombe , Combe Martin,
Woody Bay, Lynton and Lynmouth, Porlock and Minehead where we headed
inland. Over the Somerset levels, Glastonbury, Salisbury Plain and home.
weather had been kind if a little cold and the plane performed well, even if she
was a little slow to start, but who could blame her when we had left her unflown
for so long and she still has not got used to the UK winters, having spent the
most part of her life in sunny California.
