Ask Darla and Julia one definitive characteristic about me, and besides saying that I have an obsession for running and saying all things “holler,” that I am also deathly afraid of … scary things.
Scary movies. Fast moving cars. Fast moving boats. Motorcycles. Crazy roller coasters. Heights. People using big knives. Blood. Gore. Bugs. Lobsters! Sharks! Creepy crawly things in the water that I can’t see!
And … F16 fighter jets that move faster than the speed of sound.
OK, well that last one I don’t see too often. Or really ever that is, until yesterday when I was enjoying some R&R on the beach of Ocean City, New Jersey with my Dad and step family. When all of a sudden …. (that’s your cue to watch the videos below)
And just in case you didn’t get enough in-the-air action …
So why the F16s frolicking overhead in the sky on a Sunday afternoon? Because Ocean City was hosting its annual beachfront airshow. And I just happened to be lucky enough to be sitting on my butt in some sand, unknowing to the fact that I was about to catch a slice of the air action. And thankfully, have my FlipCam on hand to cherish the memories!
Is it the weekend YET?
