The little arrow is pointing to Chuckie, he's flying with us.
There's Chuckie!

I took my camera, below is the road up to Poli Poli.

I spent the night up here in Poli Poli, the temperature dropped to 39 degrees. I was prepared so that was no problem. 6:00 I was getting ready for a days painting. 7:00 three cars pulled up to the same spot and began unpacking their paragliders, we talked and decided to trade.

They would take me paragliding and I would do a painting for Dexter, the owner of Proflyght Paragliding. and Chuckie would fly with us. They strapped me in and off we went, straight into the clouds, it was a white out! I saw the 'Specter of Grotten' on a cloud shadow with a rainbow halo around my head. Turns dropped our elevation, severely.. My stomach had a little trouble there, but it was still fun.

We flew from 6,500 feet to 3,500 feet in 15 minutes. That evening they returned for another flight and I painted this water color. It was a good trade for this traveling artist.
