Goodbye To All That, Then

.
Arch and Zeppelin 2011-08-21

Getting to be time to leave the Lou, by zeppelin if necessary. No, too slow for the distance we have to travel. There was actually a zeppelin cruising around downtown yesterday. Apparently there is a technical difference between a zeppelin and a blimp but I didn't care enough to look it up. You could go for a ride if you had nothing better to do with $325 (I do, but it would be way cool). The insurance company that owns it is called Farmers but their headquarters is on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles. Go figure.

Departure is tomorrow afternoon. I've got some photos of old memories of France to post Tuesday. May or may not have a post Wednesday - it depends on whether I can snag something at O'Hare or Heathrow during layovers. Pix from Menton by Thursday for sure.

Love this shot! And farmers on Wilshire? Why not? On Rodeo Drive, not far away, boutiques are harvesting big bucks.
