There's weather out there.

This is just out of Reykjavik on the way to Ireland.

Default Irish Coast

First glimpse of the Irish coastline after the North Atlantic crossing. A very welcome sight after several hours of open ocean below.

Default Arriving in Dublin

Heading West here over Dublin bay. In the foreground is Howth Head. There's an estuary just visible to the North, I grew up right there, in Malahide.

Default Dublin City

I was gifted with the VOR D approach into Weston Airport, EIWT. The final approach course brings you right up the river Liffey, which runs through the city center. Given that I had never flown in Ireland before, this part was absolutely surreal...

Celebrating with friends and family who turned out to greet me at the airport. A day I will never forget
