It's a Bird, it's a plane, it's ??????

      The Mayor got up the other morning about 7am, and with coffee mug in hand, stepped onto the deck.  Out of the corner of his eye, he spotted a low flying object skimming the water in Meeks Bay.  Was it airborne?  At first glimpse, it seemed like a parasail rider being towed behind a boat.  No boat.  Then, it seemed like it could have been a hang glider nearing the end of his flight.  No, the wing maintained altitude and began to bank toward Rubicon Bay to the south.  Within a few more seconds, the motorized  flying wing disappeared around Rubicon Point, heading south.
     This was a first.  More investigation is needed.  I doubt that it was a drone, even stretching the definition.  Are there more flights coming? Stay tuned.
