Day 12: Salt Rock to Nkwalini

Be calm and get on a micro light. Before we left, four of the Chutz­pah Rough Rid­ers woke up for an early micro flight over the beau­ti­ful coast­line and sug­ar­cane field of Groutville.

Sur­rounded by the sweet smell of sug­ar­cane and the blue ocean we were ready for the day ahead. You can see by the grin on Bill Lebeda’s face that pilot blood runs strong in him.
