Up in the air with some science friends yesterday, a few hours on a NASA C-130 flying out of Wallops Flight Facility on the Eastern Shore. The science was definitely over my head, way way way over my head. But they did their best to explain it to me. Better than sitting in an office all day. And I got to peek out of the windows and see some of my favorite places.
That's Cape Charles and Fisherman Island at
the southern tip of the Eastern Shore.
Above is Longs Pond with the town harbor at
Cape Charles all the way to the right.
The town of Wachapreague at lower left and
Wachapreague inlet just below the props.
This one has me stumped. It's on the western shore
of the bay, south of the Potomac and North of the James.
Anybody out there recognize it?
And this is what brought us home a little bit early.
It was a great flight.
