Glider Port Flight and Learning!

Leave it to an awesome Torrey Pine’s family, the Redferns, to come up with a great idea for a fun, family outing!   Right in our own backyard is the Torrey Pines Glider Port where hang gliders and para-sailors soar over the ocean all day long.  (There is also a snack bar!) The  Redferns and their clan of three girls had some very good science questions about how the gliders stay up and move around.  Wow,  they were really thinking like  scientists!!! This is true science at work.   To learn all about it, go to:

If you really want a great experience, how about going to the Glider Port and trying it  for yourselves!!??  My son and I did  just that last spring.  Wow, running off the cliff and soaring up and down over the ocean is truly an AWESOME feeling!! I highly recommend it!
