Aw, sorry to see the Wild Mouse go. I have a soft spot for those coasters. That's a nice rocket next to "The Rocket". Is that a Workshop item or did you piece it together yourself? Like you, I sometimes build shark-themed coasters out over the water. I think I even named one "Shark Attack". The white and blue colors look great here.

Charming park. Where in MD do you live? I've been in Baltimore for 14 years.
I think like I live like I work like I love.....voluminous and disjointed. Get used to it.
