Have you ever been on a Segway? Until yesterday, I had not, but what F-U-N they are!!! It was remarkably easy to master and they are so responsive ~ all you have to do is lean forward or backward to make them go or stop. If I lived in an area where it would be practical to get from point A to point B on one, I would seriously consider purchasing one.
For DSO's birthday this summer, I got him (and me . . . wink) an hour ride in downtown Cleveland using Groupon. (If you've never used Groupon, you can get some really great deals.)
Here's Fritz in the "practice" room before hitting the streets. Helmets were mandatory :( Probably wise . . . just in case.
Tooling down the street. The Segway has three speeds, and our maximum was set at 7 mph. I was ready to go full speed ~ 12 mph.
Approaching the Rock and Roll hall of Fame.
With our guide Karl. He has been giving walking tours of Cleveland since 1999 and started the Segway tours in 2006. He commutes to work each day on his.
I believe it's the Cleveland Convention Center that is partly underground, and they have these glass columns that are used for ventilation (???).
Here's me trying to take an artsy-fartsy picture.
That's the Terminal Tower in the background. For many decades, it was the tallest building between New York and Chicago. Growing up, I knew it as the Fairy Building because my mom told me that when you lost a tooth and the tooth fairy came and got it from under your pillow, it was taken to the top of the building :) I love that story and had to share it with our guide Karl. That was a new one to him.
Gorgeous doors on an old bank building on Public Square.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
