Some more aerial photographs

It has been said that the best in-flight entertainment system is the window seat. I can never understand the person who selects the aisle seat when there is the option of observing the world passing by.
Below is a further selection of some interesting sea kayaking destinations seen out of the aircraft window.  Whenever I get in an aircraft it always stimulates ideas of where else to go paddling.  The to do list continues to grow.

 Final approach in Barcelona.  Didn't manage to get any sea kayaking in although some of the coast looked pretty interesting from a paddling perspective.
 Climbing out from Malta.  Gozo on the left and Comino in the middle are clearly visible.  There is some great kayaking to be had in the Maltese archipelago.
 Newhaven, Sussex.  A few minutes after take off from Gatwick.  It has been a few years since I paddled this stretch of the English coast.
 Superb meanders on the River Seine. 
 Flying into clouds like these, over Dijon in France means that you are in for a bumpy ride.  We were at 32,000 feet and some of the clouds were towering above us.
 Final approach into Malta.  A great sunset and you know that the kayaking is likely to be superb in the morning.
 Poole Harbour in Dorset.  Heading home after a weekend paddling in Swanage, which is just off the picture to the left.  Always good to see where you have been
