No flying today. There was no plane available, (my) 6ZP was fully booked, because the other C-172 was still in maintenance.

Tomorrow the other C-172 is coming back and the 6ZP is supposed to be exclusively mine. This way I should be able to complete the checkout and also go to Big Bear airport for high altitude airport checkout. Which is nice, however we are already 1 day behind original schedule. On top of that 6ZP needs 200hr inspection before we leave, which means that the earliest we can leave San Diego is Friday or possibly even Saturday.

Pacific Ocean
The good side of not being able to fly today was that we went to San Diego beaches and saw Pacific Ocean (quite angry today). We found some surfers enjoying big wave, however I was a bit disappointed to not find any kitesurfers.
