And if you're into stargazing, you might want to head back to the beach after dinner.
There's wind forecast for a night fly, but the stargazers may not like you blocking their view. Probably not a problem if we talk to them first and fly in a boring part of the sky :)

Thanks. Looking good.
I put my vote in for the same location as last year. The more western portion of the beach.
