This was taken prior to a Vintage Car Shoot on the runway – recall an older post (http://kerstenbeckphotoart.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/the-periwinkle-princess-by-tish-and-rich-riley/). We had breakfast at this wonderful Cafe and watched as anxious first time parachuters lined up every 30 minutes to be whisked into the blue and dropped onto the green! Note the instructor equipped with cameras on his helmet!

Last Sunday morning outside of Sacramento, at the airport in Lodi, CA, Kathleen caught this sky diver preparing for another tandem drop.
Apparently folks like to jump out of perfectly functional airplanes!
Lodi is a city located in San Joaquin County, in the northern portion of California’s Central Valley.
Lodi is best known from the Creedence Clearwater Revival song “Lodi”, and also as a center of wine production (The “Zinfandel Capital of the World”), although its vintages have traditionally been less prestigious than those of Sonoma and Napa counties. However, in recent years, the Lodi Appellation has become increasingly respected for its Zinfandel wine and other eclectic varietals. Nearby Woodbridge is the home of the well known winery by Robert Mondavi. Mondavi grew up in Lodi, and Mondavi Winery is considered one of the most influential in the American wine industry. www.kerstenbeck.com
