Had a great time yesterday in spite of the gloomy morning weather. Winds were about 18 mph most of the day and gusting higher.

A few batches of photos.

Three silly time-lapse videos from yesterday. No music, no post processing. Straight from the GoPro H5 in-camera time-lapse processor.

Cloudy morning.
