Not always going straight...

Until I find the entry to Chief Mathews Bay at the end of which hides the Kowesas River Lodge

Again careful with the boats...

you have had some good weather, do you fly real world weather?. I always do it can make it more of a challenge though....

Yes I always fly real time and real weather.  If the weather is too bad for flying, I go boating... :)

 

Or like in my Australia tour when I cannot fly real time, I load the historical weather at the time of the flight.

Stage 4  From Khutze River Lodge to Kowesas River Lodge   Part 3

 

Soft touchdown on the calm waters of the Chief Mathews Bay ...

As I taxi to my destination, I float by a group of killer whales fishing with many sea birds above them ...

Going up the river I float past the end of the small dirt strip.

And here I am at the Kowesas River Lodge pontoon, with a warm welcome for the weekend !

Love the pics Loic!  YOu should consider doing a leg in ATWC7.. you have a gift for getting some great shots.

I've been a fan of Misty Moorings for several years but have yeat to install them on this rig..

Having been inspired by your travels, i will definitely be hooking out the files from my 'archive's and reinstalling.
