Kitesurfing the Atlantic

While in Margate, NJ, USA, I paused for a look at the beach and ocean. Saw this fellow kitesurfing.

Gave me an opportunity to test out the video feature on my iPhone7. Works fairly well. That water was a bit chilly, but it didn’t seem to cut down on the guy’s fun. Be careful out there.

Lucy, Margate, NJ, USA

Lucy is one of those roadside attractions from another era. A giant elephant that looks out to sea in Margate, New Jersey.


Fun for the whole family, this type of thing is. On the afternoon I was there, it was closed. Still something to see. Enjoy the journey.

The Wooden Nickel

There are timeless names for things and places. The Wooden Nickel as a term has been around for quite a while. In Hillsborough, NC, I found a bar by that name and decided to stop in for some refreshment.


All types of craft beers available as well as a fully stocked bar for whatever else you might want to imbibe. Friendly vibe here, too, which is always nice. The kind of place where you can linger, chat, and enjoy.

Things found…

Pack rats unite! Open those drawers, closets, and basement doors and take a look at the random things that, for some reason, you decided to keep. Don’t ask me why, but I kept some Mexican money from a trip there back in the early 1990’s.


It would have been smarter to turn that currency into dollars and spend it wisely. Not sure, why, but I kept it, buried deep in a desk drawer. Plenty of other random treasures in there, too. I suppose this is how archaeologists feel when they make a remarkable discovery from a thousand years ago.
