Commuter Train

My camera and I were restless today so we went to a couple parks and a railroad station, plus took a stroll on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, to capture some new photos for my Flickr site.  I also grabbed my Flip video camera, just in case something interesting presented itself.

I took 111 photos – not many of them up to my usual brilliant standards  😀 – but I was able to select several to update to Flickr, maybe tomorrow.  While I was at the Hollywood railroad station I heard a far away train whistle and looked up to see a northbound Tri-Rail train coming towards the station.  I had just enough time to get the Flip camera from its case and capture its arrival.  Tri-Rail is a commuter rail system running between Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.  Here is the video:

Whilst strolling on the Boulevard I saw this sign that tickled my funny bone.  I am a great fan of silly puns.

Hmmmmm….. I wonder where it went.

Oh, I stopped at a gas station for a fill up and found this family of ducks between Pumps number 5 and 6.  They apparently had decided it was nap time.  They had no intention of moving for anybody or anything!

    It didn’t feel like 44 seconds for the train to pull in and stop.

    And that’s a good question about the hospital. One might also ask why.

      Heehee…. The first thing that entered my weird mind when I saw the sign was a vision of that gigantic hospital complex being hauled down the highway by a Chevy truck! Strange that it never occurred to me to wonder why.
