Lunch Time = Play Time

It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood so I decided to walk across the street from work and eat lunch outdoors while watching the airplanes.

Right off the bat, this aircraft sped down the runway and lifted off.

Hope it is not going to a fire!

I noticed a couple of gliders parked on the grassy runway area and another plane just to the other side of them. I was hoping I'd get to see a glider being towed up until it reached the proper altitude to commence soaring. I was in luck!

Aero-tow getting ready for take off

Off they go into the wild blue yonder

While I wasn't able to watch much of the glider action, it was still an enjoyable lunch. Hope you had a nice day, too.

What a wonderful treat to watch. I'd really like to ride in a glider. Great captures.
