Now THAT’S flying!!
Maybe even feel like a superhero!
A friend of mine commented on my facebook post (where I originally shared it), saying that her sister was there when this was taking place and recorded her own footage of this exciting occasion. And her sister is a former jet ski racer…as is the guy doing the flying in this clip.
I suppose that jet ski racing comes in handy as training for going to this kind of flying activity.
It sure looks like fun!

Imagine driving this dazzling shimmery car!
What would it be like?
The car itself would be fun to drive. And the colourful effect is occurring under flourescent lighting. Would it be the same outside in the sun? And what about on overcast, cloudy days? Would it just look like a plain silvery car?
Unfortunately, I don’t have the answers to those questions, so my imagination will always be wondering…..
Having a long overdue trip to Germany – filled with visits with my cousins and uncles, as well as enjoying some sightseeing excursions.
This time the explorations have been in the northern part of the Black Forest area and a couple of places in Bavaria…..all of which I hadn’t seen before during previous family visits.
Now generally, the underground garages in Canada are fairly well laid out in that parking spots have designated numbers and letters, and then there are the entrances and exits with either ramps, stairs, and elevators. Nothing that stands out.
Today I saw these two unique features of an underground garage located in the town of Füssen, Bavaria, namely…..
a) A cordoned off area for people’s bicycles, which seems quite useful for certain situations.
b) a designated “Frauenparkplatz” ie. a woman’s parking spot – there were close to 10 of them in this underground garage.
And I wondered…..
WHY would women need these designated areas??
I can already imagine the comments from the peanut gallery…..haha!
You just never know what you’ll see at a truck stop/gas station/restaurant/bakery that’s decorated in a friendly manner….
Directions are ALWAYS so helpful!
Continuing on with some more fun and creative license plate words and names that I have discovered in the past two weeks….
So…..it’s either Joy’s Mazda…..or Joyce’s Mazda? Either way, it’s definitely her toy!
Again, some options are: someone who enjoys putting a religious touch to things…..OR…..it’s someone’s favourite song?
Well, and here,…..Fawn has a pretty spiffy looking Nissan!
Okay, now three more added to my new and burgeoning collection.
The silly ideas one gets whilst standing behind a car and one’s gaze drops to that car’s license plate…..because it ISN’T just a random selection of letters and numbers but sometimes inventive, creative, or just funny words! They are personalized expressions of these car owners and meaningful to them in a myriad of ways.
Here are three that I have spied just in the past month….all in Ottawa.
I suppose this might be the beginning of a new photo collection?
This one has me intrigued. Is it a business? Or someone likes catlids….as opposed to doglids. Who knew they had lids? Eyelids, maybe? What other lids could they be?
Some cool dude, right?
On my trip in July of 2007 to the South Island of New Zealand – on the occasion of my girlfriend’s wedding – her daughter, Emily, and I took off one free afternoon to go on a mini-excursion.
We came upon this nifty looking, wooden Maori carving – quite TALL – which is located at the Karaka Point Historic Reserve (a short drive outside of Picton).
This look-out point offers up a spectacular view of part of the Marlborough Sounds area.
The following sequence of photos gives you a somewhat panoramic glimpse into these beautiful sounds.
The clouds and waves that day created a bit of dramatic ambiance.
I looked up some added information for you.
Online the site, 100% Pure New Zealand, describes the Marlborough Sounds as follows:
“Marlborough Sounds is a collection of ancient sunken river valleys filled with the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Forested hills rise steeply from the sea around an intricate coastline of sheltered inlets and sandy bays. The area has three main bodies of water – Queen Charlotte, Kenepuru and Pelorous Sounds. The Department of Conservation manages over 50 reserves in this scenic playground.”
There are grassy areas where one can walk about and enjoy the views. I imagined what it would be like to walk all the way to the end of that huge outcropping.
And finally, included is the sign as well.
