Catching some air off the South Hill bluff

FLYING -- My bicycle commute up the South Hill and along High Drive is never dull. The bluff trails invite all sorts of people and recreation, such as hikers, dog walkers, mountain bikers, runners, families, people on the verge of making families....

Last night I was treated to the flying spectacle of paraglider Jonathan Woodruff launching off High Drive.

"I parked by car below and I have time for one quick flight this evening," he said.... and he was off.
