Life IS a Beach!

In 2013 Jimmy Buffett released a song written for him by Mark Knopfler of Dier Straits (St. Somewhere album) – it instantly became one of my favourite Buffett tunes, but as JD played the song this afternoon on #RadioMargaritaville, I finally got the lyrics; Life IS a Beach!

Lift Lock on the Canal

Today I had a chance to fly over the Kirkfield Lift-Lock, part of the Trent Severn Waterway. I have heard that Parks Canada had recently instructed lock staff to disallow flying any “drones on their grounds”. I took off from an “off site” location, took the pictures in less than 11 minutes and was done before anyone even noticed. No harm was done and no aviation rules were broken.

Quite frankly, I can see governments in the not too distant future, establishing a “no fly zone” over these installations and other similarly security sensitive places.

All the innocent, interesting fun is being drained from our world…….

A good view of our surroundings from an aerial image taken yesterday, shared from a friend – images in my previous entry were taken from the pile of dry rocks in the upper left:
