Day 940: Beach Fun at Elephant Butte Lake SP

This morning the weather was favorable for flying, so I set up for launch along with my Albuquerque flying friends Sue and Carl.  We last flew together at Salton Sea.  Kirk is here too but decided not to fly today.

Winds were light and variable, and at 4,600 feet of elevation I had a number of failed launches before managing to launch flight #97:

After homeschool, the kids had a great time playing in the shallow water:

We’re only a couple feet from the shoreline, so we feel like we’re houseboating:
