Flying on a Bumblebee

Yesterday, Ian was offered the wonderful opportunity of going up in a seaplane (float plane) – called Bumblebee – over the Bay. He ran out of the house giggling like a school kid.

Max saw Bumblebee as he was boarding the ferry in San Francisco and took a photo, little knowing that Ian, on Bumblebee, was taking a photo of Max’s ferry.

The fuzzy orange blob way up in the sky is Bumblebee, so named because it's orange (despite its lack of black stripes).
