Mark Viator is a traveller. He tends to travel -- a lot. A Lot. Whether it be to the little cookie shop at the end of his suburb, or a whole other parallel world where everything is at the same time... More > alike and different. Not so much because he likes it, more so, because he wants to go away. He wanders, moving from world to world without any hope or dream for a better future. High school doesn't help with that fact either.
Then, like that lost little pencil for that homework you have to really do, hope finally finds Mark when he isn't looking for it, and like that same lost little pencil, he loses her again when he needs hope.

Featuring many never-before-seen photographs, this book illustrates the history of this outstanding example of seaside piers, and is sure to bring back cherished memories for all who have enjoyed a turn on this iconic pier.< Less

This calendar is the first phase of that... More > project.
Hope you like it.< Less
