what a fantastic classroom!!!
lucky the students who learn to fly
from such a brave heart
up there in the blue.
To raise one who gives
flying lessons....well done,

Love the reflection on the water in the second photo. I've never tried this, but she makes it look like fun!

I'm nervous just looking at the photos - guess I do have a thing about heights.

Good Evening Elk,

Happy week to you,

Well, that looks like a very fun and invigorating job. The sky must be really blue to reflect in the river that beautiful color (excuse that sentence structure).

Tracy said...

Weeee... what fun! Heights spook me a bit, but that does look like wild, free fun! And with suck a sky... I'd want to be up close it too. :o) Happy Day, my friend ((HUGS))
