SkyWatch Friday

 
Posted by Picasa


I kept waiting for this paraglider to get closer to me, but he never did, so this is the best I could do. My grandson and I did enjoy watching him floating around up there over the Walmart parking lot the other day. To see more beautiful skies from around the world, please visit SkyWatch Friday.

Ooooh, I hope he didn't buy his equipment from Walmart!

It is a lovely photo of the sky, sometimes you can wait around for ever for the interesting photo and sometimes they sneak up on you but always fun to be sky watching.

Sometimes you get lucky, other times you don't.

I like watching those because its something I would never try. It takes guts and skill, I dont have either.

I love watching them over Botany Bay and from Stanwell Tops, too. But I could NEVER participate myself. I think you are just close enough for my liking!!

Looks like he/she was having fun. Not for me either, though.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I enjoy watching paragliders, but I don't want to be up there!
