Imagine flying above the ocean in a small tin can with no doors, no parachute and no safety vests?
We made a quick visit to the beach as we had a huge storm approaching that will last for the next four days. It seems that this guy in the gyrocopter and his child had the same idea and it was a pleasant surprise for my camera.
Amazing to think that the small clouds would change themselves into a dangerous big and dark storm.
This beach is our regular hang out, as not many people come here.
I heard the funny chopper like sound and saw him coming in from a distance.
As they drew closer I could get a few better shots.
Wow! I wonder what the Kelp gull was thinking watching this strange bird below him.
Caught a nice glint of the weak sunlight on the planes windscreen, as he flew past us .
Finally he was gone and I was happy to have the gift for my camera.
People here are very safety conscious and I bet that the pilot had all of the necessary safety equipment aboard. It seems to be a reliable machine and I will also travel in it exactly the same way.
I have never been worried about safety as a child, as I used to drive an old Dodge truck with no doors on the farm.
Should there be a problem, I would simply jump out of the door opening into the sea and swim back to the shore.
But with my luck, a great white shark will be waiting for for me with his mouth wide open hahaha.
And That's All Friends.
