We only had two sets of ears, so Dalton had a noisy ride in the back seat, but Michela seemed to enjoy it :-) After the standard safety briefing, we flew North to find her house and then South toward Canton to see their lights. There were hints of lightning far off to the south, though, so we swung back before full dark.
Since nobody was around, I simply set up for a straight-in landing, S-ing around to burn off some altitude. This landing was right on the money, although I touched down just a smidge before I thought I would and so it was a tap instead of a kiss. Laura said later that it sounded good, though, so I'll take it ;-)
The sunset, both when we were in the pattern and then again when we turned for home, was phenomenal! What an awesome day.
