The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is an oceanfront amusement park in Santa Cruz, California. Founded in 1907 and operated by the family-owned Santa Cruz Seaside Company, it is California's oldest surviving amusement park and one of two seaside parks on the West Coast of the United States (the other being the Santa Monica Pier).

Back in June of last year, I blogged about a weathered (one reader called it "rustic") sign that greets all travelers to the Tri State Region. Now I'm not sure if that picture embarrassed the local leaders, but in any case, they took action to make the sign better. That's right, there's nothing that a coat of paint can't fix. Now THAT'S state of the art.

Stepptown, West Virginia.
I received a comment (thank you!) on the previous post about how grim this region is. The thing was, there were no shortage of scenes like that. It was hard to take pictures because there was a new scene around every corner. It's hard to select a scene to shoot when they all are stark. It's tough here. Really, really tough.

The drive from Huntington, West Virginia to Pikeville, Kentucky run through some of the most poverty ridden areas I've ever traveled through. Sorry if the blog seems down for the next few posts.

Even in a busy airport, sometimes you are the only one on the tram. Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Say hello to my weekend yacht.
Not buying it, huh?
This exotic looking piece of aluminum is the AMH Seacoaster, a technology testbed built by a company hoping to win big time Navy contracts. From what I could tell, the contractor wanted to show that this technology would be used to move large amounts of personnel and materiel rapidly over great distances into ports not large or deep enough for standard transport ships. I could not find anything to indicate whether the Navy actually bought it.
Panama City, Florida.

So think about it. There's a theory that was postulated about 150 years ago, and rigorous science has not been able to prove it wrong in all that time. Pretty strong theory, eh?
