The Blimp

Look what we saw on Tuesday! The blimp went right by our house. According to the blimp website:

"Today, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company no longer mass-produces airships. In the United States it operates three well-recognized blimps: the Spirit of Goodyear, based in Akron, Ohio; the Spirit of America, based in Carson, California; and the Spirit of Innovation, in Pompano Beach, Florida."

It was one of those "run and get the camera" moments.

I still have vivid memories of such a blimpe flying overhead when I was five and I thought it was a bomb.

The blimp going by when I was a child was one of those "call everyone else" moments! We'd all pour out of the house to have a look. Doubt it comes quite far enough south for me to expect to see it where I currently live. Thanks for the pix!

I sure did enjoy that moment. Hopefully, my children will remember it as well.
