This was our second flight of 2015 and it sure turned out to be a memorable one.  Beginning in north-central New Jersey we zigzagged
a bit first heading southeast, then southwest over
Six Flags Great Adventure, then back east towards the
Jersey Shore and Seaside Heights.

By mid-day we were circling Atlantic City, then continuing further
south we passed Ocean City, Sea Isle City, Avalon, Wildwood and finally Cape May, where I shot numerous photos of the old town itself.  We landed at Cape May County airport for a fuel stop and then it was a straight line run back home from there, with a slight tail wind giving us a ground speed of about 140 mph.  Nothing to complain about at all !!!

As always, I hope you enjoy the view from above...
