For the last 46 years the Tangier Holly Run has taken place to take Christmas holiday decorations and donations to Tangier Island. I talked Jack into coming to the event. Here we are warming up on the ramp at KDMW.

From the ground it looked like a beautiful day to fly.

However once we climbed through 1,000', it was really hazy. There was a temperature inversion going on today - on the ground it was in the mid 30's, and at altitude it was in the 50's.

First stop of the day was to W29 - Bay Bridge airport to get breakfast and pick up the greens.

Final for W29.

The Holly Run pilots. I think there were about 50 airplanes and over 100 attendees.

Loaded up with Holly.

Bill Roger and his RV-7 getting ready to depart.

The Eastern Shore has some unique views of the marshes and water passageways.

Final for KTGI. There were a LOT of airplanes landing at the same time. It reminded me of Oshkosh!

We had a nice lunch and did a walk around the island. It was around 50 degrees and a nice day to go for a walk.

Flying home my friend Bill tagged along with Jack and I for a little. I caught these pics of him.

He reciprocated and snapped a couple in-air pictures of me.

On the way back the layer of haze had worsened.

To get out of the haze we decided to go down lower.
