Droning on empty in Saikung

Pin It

The weather was finally clearing up a little after a few days' of rain, and I was eager to take my drone out for a spin.  I didn't want to do a strenuous hike, but wanted to fly over some clear water, so Hello Kitty and I went off to Hebe Haven in Sai Kung, with Kuma in tow.

But we needed some nourishment first, and I had been meaning to revisit Chez Les Copains for the last couple of years after that awesome lunch way back when the whole gang still hung out together.
Thankfully Bonnie set up a table outside for us, so that we could keep Kuma with us.

Smoked andouille salad - there was no way that I would have passed up ordering this.  It's been a few months since I last had andouille or andouillette, and I was so happy to have a little taste today.  A little smoky, but full of the stinky flavors that only parts of the GI tract can deliver.  Served with a few thin slices of apple for their sweetness, along with a drizzle of balsamico.

Grilled sardines - these were apparently from Brittany, and were very delicious indeed.

Banoffee pie - I was looking for the French meringue, but Bonnie obviously thought I should have this instead.  Pretty yum.

With our bellies full, and Kuma having had a little fun with some furry friends, I decided it was time to do a little flying.  But here's what my plans hit a snag: I actually hadn't put my memory card back in the DJI Mavic Pro!  The batteries were also no longer fully-charged after a few weeks of being idle.

Thankfully, a low resolution version of the pictures and videos can be transmitted back and saved on my phone.  So I took off with the Mavic Pro and did a pass around the bay, anyway.

The weather was turning, and we needed to get Kuma cleaned up, so I didn't get much flying done...  But I'll be back soon enough.
