As a member of virtualtourist.com, camera is always in hand when looking for photos for my VT pages travel tips. On Memorial Day, May 25, 2009 at 12:45pm, I was standing on the top deck of the cruise ship Carnival Paradise while in the Port of Long Beach enjoying the sights of Long Beach, California before the ship sailed. I looked up and to my amazement was a wondrous sight, an actual Zeppelin flying overhead. I snapped the photo of the airship without even looking at the camera's settings, I was so excited. I got the photo. I also got the bug to one day take my wife on a flight from Long Beach. Each day is a day closer to that day.
