Our take-off view down to the tarmac, making even the real water bombers look like toys
We are excited about this leg: after some spectacular lake scenery promised by the blue shapes splattered on the map, we will finally cross the border into Manitoba, for our very first experience of the Canadian Prairies (that is, closer than the 30,000 ft. view from an airliner). The sky is dull grey as we set out, but visibility is great, and we expect to get to St. Andrews before any of the predicted rain comes in from the west.
Wednesday, July 9 - Leg 7: Dryden to St. Andrews
