Went out early when I saw the trees across the canal moving and wind lines on the canal. Had the whole place to myself with only a family flying kites nearby. Had a very nice session, very peaceful. Don mentioned that when he has gotten the opportunity to be the only one on the water like that he has found the water very clean and you don't have to look over your shoulder before making a move. I decided I kind of like this type of wind as I can relax during the non-planing time and then plane up and try a move. After session two, the regulars were rigging up, but I decided to head on home.
