Here's a neat look at the Patrick Henry leaving the dock for an adventure through liquid space. It's kind of an unusual view, although it was clearly taken from the Skyway...you'd think there would be plenty of others just like it, but it's the only one I have!
I loved the elegantly simple effect achieved by going through a storm of bubbles, as a kid I was convinced that we were really diving. Nevermind that seconds later you could still see the surface shimmering just above you! I guess the "suspension of disbelief" was in full force for me.
There's the Yacht Bar in the background, probably a good place to grab a burger or hot dog. During what little research I manage to do for this blog, I discovered that September 6th (yesterday!), was the 40th anniversary of the closing of the old Yacht Bar.
I will be happy to see the submarines up and running again as of next year, the Nemo theme could be fun. But I still miss the classic voyage!
