Savannah on a Segway

Kinetic TouristsCarriage tours are so passe. An entrepreneurial gentleman with connections to Savannah, GA is offering tours of the city’s historic district – on Segway HTs! At $65/person for a two-hour session including training, the tours are not cheap, but what a great way to enjoy a Segway short of plunking down $5k for one yourself. I wouldn’t recommend it in the August heat – but you snowbirds heading down I-95 this Winter should stop by and check these out.

Sam goes to Cooperstown

Crw 4766 001.Sized

The extended Handelman family visited Cooperstown, NY in June, 2005 for a little get together. Attending were (obviously) the Handelmans as well as the Hogans, Sagans and Trotz family. Pics include time at the lake, a colonial-era farm, the National Baseball Hall of Fame (go Sox!), and a few pics of the family en masse. Enjoy! Contact joey dot trotz at turner dot com for access to more family photos.

Big, Big, Waves

Surfers from around the world converged on Oahu’s north shore for an elite invitation-only event to the top competitors in the sport. As reported in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, the event has been held only seven times in the past 20 years, the event features a purse over $50,000, and only takes place when waves are generally over 30 feet. sign_hs.jpgThe Eddie Aikau Big Wave Invitational honors the life of former Waimea Bay lifeguard and surfer Eddie Aikau, who was never found after he paddled off for help when the Hokulea capsized in rough seas in 1978. Someday, I’d like to get back to Hawaii during the winter to see these waves and to watch the whales come through in their seasonal migration, but I did get to photograph the windsurfers on Maui’s north shore during our honeymoon in 2003.
