Don't get trapped by marine layer!

Dont worry! Didnt, but it COULD happen at Shelter Cove on the Lost Coast. 0Q5 is the identifier, I don't need to say anything other than N89YB was a champ today cruising the coastline over a glassy ocean, and Shelter Cove held that fog layer miles offshore. Truly glorious, another Club was having a "fly-in" with planes from Napa, Oakland, Hayward, and more dropping in. Great opportunity to rate fellow pilots (one Mooney had to go-around...you guessed it, too fast!) and check out the sea lions on the rocks off shore. What a day to test out our new GNC355 Garmin Navigator with dual G5s serving as PFD and HSI. It makes this Cherokee 180 a great VFR cross country cruiser. We have a couple of post-installation hiccups, but it really ups our game. See the attached pics.

Parked off of the taxiway just steps from the beach

And here is a quick shot of that beach, steps from Shelter Cove airport....tough life, huh?

and here is most of our gang getting together for some hangar talk in Marin County, California
