Several years ago the Gorse Fox won an award in Starfleet. The award was was to visit an airfield in the Midlands and spend some time having a trial helicopter lesson. This, he decided, was just about the most fun you could have above sea level. (See Note 1)
Today, it appears, the Gorse Fox has complete 21,915 days of life and as a celebratory bonus the Silver Vixen had arranged another chance to hang beneath a rotary wing an stare down at the Sussex countryside. As a result we headed off to Shoreham Airport to go and select a suitable organisation to provide this service. That done, it is now a matter of selecting a convenient date for the venture.
On the way across country we did manage to chat with Cousteau-cub who had popped over to Koh Phi Phi for the day. it was lovely to hear from her; particularly the bit where she and the Coventry Hobbit had been discussing whether they might be able to visit in the Summer.
We stopped at L.A. for a meal – and managed to chat with Urban-cub as she left her course in Warrington and started her journey home.
A super day.
