On Sunday August 30th, Richard and I travelled by motorbike to the City of Duncan for a fly-in event where several small privately owned airplanes flew in and out that day onto a ten acre grassed field. We met up with Richard's mother and father and five other motorcyclists before starting our journey onto the highway from Victoria to Duncan. It was another warm summery day - with just a hint of Fall in the early morning air. Once off the highway before Duncan, we rode through the small ocanside village of Cowichan Bay and along picturesque countryside roads with acres of farmland and rolling fields. The fresh air and smells of the country are not usually so noticeable while driving inside a car as they are riding on the bike. It was a lovely ride there and the fly-in event was busy with small planes flying in and other activities around the property. There was food and fresh baked pies, games for children and a live band played inside the hanger.
