One of the few places where I can watch the sun rise and set over the water.

Edit: over the Atlantic

Last weekend on a night jump, I lost a beacon in freefall. Guess how that looked to anyone on the ground

I was wearing three, so they figured it out pretty quickly. Never did find the damn thing, it was over corn.
