While riding my bike along the seawall in Bryant Park in the little City of Lake Worth, Florida:

I just happened to look up and to the east, and look what I saw! An airship above “The Island” of Palm Beach:
“The Goodyear Blimp is any one of a fleet of airships operated by the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, used mainly for advertising and capturing aerial views of live sporting events on television.” And more from Wikipedia. . .

“The term blimp itself is defined as a non-rigid airship – without any internal structure, the pressure of lifting gas contained within the airship envelope maintains the vessel’s shape.” The Goodyear Blimp has its very own website too!
