I played Hookey!

It was a beautiful day, so I played hookey!

This is the boardwalk at Playland, the Art Deco amusement park in my hometown.  I love to sit here and read or write.

This is the back of the Monster Mouse roller coaster, looking towards the Ferris Wheel.  The park’s not open yet; they’re preparing it for the summer.

This is the back of the infamous Dragon Coaster, one of the original rides from the late 1920’s.

The view from the boardwalk to the beach.  I love the architecture — and the fact that the dogs can still play on the beach and in the water until the park opens!

It was beautiful and in the 70’s here today — there was no way I was going to sit inside!
