Took a walk today with the family out around the Shoreline Drive/McGee Beach/Cole Park area, thought I would shoot some pics (cell phone camera--sorry, not great quality). It sure was breezy today, but at least it was fairly mild.

Cole Park sure is busy on the weekends. Kinda irritates me to see the litterbugs out there though. I also noticed that some of the trash recepticles were overflowing... does the city not do anything to try and empty these trash cans for weekend traffic? I am sure that is why I was seeing some of the trash out there. Lots of good walkways around there though.

I think next weekend we will try to rent one of those large bicycle things you see on Shoreline Dr sidewalks and see what that is all about.

I appreciate that. I will try to get out some more here in the coming days and take some more pics around the area. I need to get my Canon Powershot batteries charged up (haven't done so due to moving here last week), which is why I have been using my cell phone camera. Fortuantely, my cell phone has a 2.0 MP camera on it, so it can take half way decent pics here and there. Just have to watch my lighting though.

Where did you find the "gulf clipper"? I looked for it over the weekend where it "used to be", but it's long gone. the whole peoples' street t-head had a whole new look to it, kinda sterile looking though. i liked the gritty look that it had before.

It was behind the Marina Del Sol Condos, next to Cole Park in that closed off marina on the north side of the park. It looks like it would have been alot of fun to have rode in its hayday.
