Sanderson - Harvey / Beechcraft Bonanza A36 (N7418F) / VFR

Weather was just barely VMC for this flight in a new Bonanza from Sanderson to Harvey. It only took about half an hour. After accidentally starting out in the wrong direction (west instead of east), I turned around and followed V27 (SEA230) up to Puget Sound, where I turned north, and then skirted around the Class B to the east to get to Harvey. Much of this was flown really low to avoid the low clouds: I was at 2000 at some points over Puget Sound.

The runway at Harvey (the paved one) was extremely tiny, only 2700 feet. I flew a really short short final and, amazingly, made a very smooth landing. There's a turf runway, too, but I like pavement.
