    Took my first flight over salt water off Diamond Beach in Cape May New Jersey. The weather was bright and sunny with almost no breeze. The shipwreck SS Atlantus ran aground in 1926 and has collapsed into the ocean ever since. I always wanted to see the other side of the ships hull that can't be seen from shore. I was very nervous but kept focusing on the target and not the water. In mid-flight, I switched from video to take a still and my finger was shaking so much I had a hard time switching back. Very pleased with the flight.

    Did the bunker a couple of days before but a park Ranger asked me to bring it down. Said it upsets the birds. Had enough time to get the video I wanted. His quad made more noise as he drove away than my P3A.

    Also the parking lot across from the WWII Observation Tower is a great spot to launch from and investigate the tower and surrounding area.
