Today's flight

The club was due to go to D'Urville Island today for a visit, but that great idea got stomped on by this morning's weather. I really felt like going for a look around somewhere, so Blair and I jumped into the club's Cessna 172N, ZK-FLT and headed east to Palliser Bay.

Palliser Bay is is where many club training flights occur, but today we headed to the very eastern shoreline of Palliser Bay for a look around. This link to Google Maps shows the area we were in:

The following pictures show a small fraction of the scenery - the first looking south towards Cape Palliser and the remaining pictures are a couple of the smaller settlements in the area. Look closely at the photos and you'll see the problems the locals are having with erosion.
