Atlantic City Boardwalk

The Atlantic City Boardwalk was the place to be today. Bright sunshine, cool temps, and lots of blue sky overhead. There was a charity walk going on, but the boardwalk was plenty wide for everyone. I stayed out of the casinos and took in the fresh air and fun. Here’s a timelapse video showing a good part of the walk from the Taj Mahal down to Bally’s. Don’t miss the pizza and sausage at the shop in the middle of the tape.

The only thing that could have made this day better was a flight in a small airplane. That’s on for tomorrow. By the way, the video you watched was made from still images captured by the little GoPro camera I reviewed a few days ago.

Linear Park Construction, Aruba

Aruba’s Coastal Linear Park is well underway. This is going to be a promenade of sorts stretching from Queen Beatrix Airport all the way to the hotel area. The following photo was taken across the street from the Talk of the Town Hotel, near the traffic circle at the Cas di Cultura.

That’s a tremendous number of pavers they’re using! It also appears that kiosks like the one shown below will host shops or info centers or snack stands, which would be welcome to those using the park.

The project appears to be a great asset in the making. Hopefully it will be possible to ride bicycles, walk, and just sit by the sea for a look at the sunset. Aruba deserves credit for installing such a feature, making an already welcoming island that much better.

Bon dia.
