So I walked down to the Long Beach Half Marathon Race Expo today. I had to pick up my packet and my tags and my tshirt that makes me look like a stuffed sausage.

On my way back I accidentally ran into one of these…

How weird is that to see on a public beach in Southern California? It was even weirder when I got closer and saw:

See all those guys in helmets on the side? I feel very comforted when I see soldiers wearing helmets elsewhere. When they’re standing walking distance from my place in full gear I tend to wonder if I should start stockpiling canned veggies and beef jerky.

But seriously…

How fricking COOL is that thing!

And then, of course, it was gone in a big plume of sand. I videotaped it (all five minutes). Let’s just pretend I’m standing on the bow of a ship because otherwise I shake like an old lady. LOL.**

Oh, and in other interesting local news, U.S. Navy Hovercraft actually have civilian applications. Check out the article HERE.

**Please note, video is not up on this post, I’ll post it on it’s own. According to my cruddy DSL it’s going to take 2 hours to upload a five minute video.
