common people

Deryck drags Paul out to sniff the icy north westerly wafting across Kent. Despite the perma-frost, there's some lovely thermal activity in the smooth air.

It turns out to be a right lovely day. It's more thermal soaring than ridge relaxation, but with rooks marking the lift and plenty of layers to keep out the chill, you'd never know it's still Winter.

Steve does some quality flying...
