We live on beautiful Hollywood Beach, outside Oxnard, CA. This morning we looked out over the ocean and saw this graceful majestic blimp slowly hugging the coast line. My husband and I flew to our sun porch to get a better look. My husband reached for his binocculars and read the name on the blimp. The weather was perfect: calm air, clear skies. The view from the blimp must have been spectacular! I promised my husband that I would google airshipventure.com to find out all about this. What a great idea!
I found out track the ship from facebook and realize it's behind my backyard!!!, grab my camera and start to following around by driving for 2 hours and taking multiple shots over San Pedro / Long Beach / Signal Hills and finally at Long Beach Airport!
On a Sunday outing for my aging mother I took her over to Long Beach where she used to teach school. Seeing the airship cross our path as we approached the Long Beach circle, I chose to go to the top of Signal Hill just beyond it to see if I could get a few pictures.
