Santa Paula - Santa Ynez / Cessna 152 (N702YL) / VFR

I try to find short flights for the 152, since it is so incredibly slow. This evening I flew from Santa Paula to Santa Ynez, a distance of only about 59 nautical miles. It still took nearly an hour.

The flight went perfectly in every respect. I flew at 4500 feet all the way. The only problem—there's always something!—was that I had the sun blazing into my eyes almost every single step of the way. So it was hard to admire the scenery. All I could do was squint through sunglasses. Why do I always seem to have the sun in my eyes? But other than that, it was perfect.
