That's what makes the Zenith so versatile and functionally recreational. It looks like an approach from the shore with floats would work too. Simply awesome!

Great shot. You can tell by the shadows that it's summer down there!

What a great shot!  That is why I built a Zenith 750.  I hope to get to fly to places like that one.  New Zealand would be a bit of a stretch, unless I pull a fuel trailer behind me!

We Canuks have beaches but they don't look like that currently.

Thanks for sharing the the dream.

Inspiring setting. Good to see that you can still legally fly into such places.
