Breezy Landing Practice

So this was the first time I've been able to fly the plane after the annual and the second time I've actually flown it solo.  I decided to try a quick trip around the pattern with some pretty gusty winds to sharpen up my high wind landing procedures.

Winds were gusting 18-22kts.  I purposefully came in a little faster than normal with only 2 notches of flaps instead of 3. 

You can see how bad I floated this was mostly due to the extra speed and the fact that the wind was blowing directly down the runway.  It also serves as a good example of how well these low wings will float on you if your not careful.
