I once again went into my happy place - aka my vacation folder - and decided to share these photos we took while walking around Monterey. You can barely see him but that's Snoopy on the side of the blimp.

Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Wren,Fishing Guy, Louise and Sylvia for hosting SkyWatch Friday.

  1. Pretty nice! So clear. I used to see blimps alot when I was younger, but it's been years and years!

  2. I haven't seen a blimp in the sky in a while. That's cute; Snoopy Flying Ace!

  3. Denise, Great shots of the blimp!

  4. Love it, Denise! Great shots!

  5. I like the color of the blimp, I have never seen a blimp in person only on TV .

  6. Great shots of the blimp against beautiful clear blues skies ;-)
    Hugs and blessings,

  7. Love the blimps...great capture.

  8. That's a great shot ! I love to see blimps, they seem to just float by...
    Sadly, I haven't seen any in years.

  9. What a fun shot! Love those blue skies and what a great place for Snoopy to fly!! I haven't seen one of those blimps in some time now. Fun! Have a great weekend, Denise!


  10. Dirigibles! That's one of my favourite words!

  15. What a beautiful blue sky, well set with the blimp and Snoopy!

  16. What a wonderful blue sky Denise. And yes, I could see Snoopy! Ax

  17. A great contrast between the blue sky and colourful blimp. I would be too scared to fly in one.

  18. So beautiful blue sky and also liked those words!It's positive!

  19. Those airships are always fascinating if a little noisy. Great shots!

  20. Happy week-end. I can remember the first Goodyear Blimp I saw. Was during WWII, I had seen a lot of movies and they also always showed what they called Newsreels before the movie. Well when myself and two other little girls saw this thing coming through the sky, we took off running towards my Grandmothers house, yelling, a bomb is coming, a bomb is coming. Because to us it was shaped like some of those bombs we saw dropped during the Newsreel. Grandma was partly deaf and couldn't understand a thing we were trying to tell her, until she came outside. She looked up and got to laughing, can't you see, it says Goodyear on the side, well none of us could read that good yet. LOL She got a chuckled over that for many years.

  21. Hi Denise.... I'm glad you go into your 'happy place' (trip folder) to find great pictures to share with us...

    I love SNOOPY...
