West Coast Last Week

From a plane spotting perspective it was a pretty disappointing trip to home country last week... Lousy weather elsewhere in the country, then lousy weather on the Coast meant there were no visitors. And what with family obligations I didn't get much time to check all the heliports...
However I did bike the West Coast Wilderness Trail which I can really recommend
