Cinza's conversations

Hi, Cinza! Very interesting videos! Thanks! And the picture is from an exhibition here. Best regards, André.

Willie and his folk would need life support systems for a colony at that diving bell site! Then there would be other "native" mud wurms there. One of the most beautiful refraction color displays I ever saw was on an ordinary coastal worm under a binocular microscope. Rivaled a peacock.

That looks like a major traffic control center

yes, it's the radar tower of the Vessel Traffic Center for the Ems River.

but what are they?

offices. Shipping Companies, Brokers, Insurances, etc.

Windmills I know, but this I have never seen.

this is German Engineering, Cinza.

I suppose on that coast steady wind is not a real problem.

North German Coast is almost always windy.

Long in need of your previous, A Woman's Place! No shackles. As a granddad of granddaughters (until July when a grandson broke the trend) the old entrapment of women as "housewives" still can anger me. My family was early in educated women, though my parent's generation offered few opportunities outside the home. I realize now that my excellent high school teachers were partly a product of women with degrees in science, math and the humanities who today would have many choices other than the classroom. My government/civics teacher would probably be in elected office now and at least two science teachers in industry.

It was! One of the best fish I have ever had and there have been some memorable ones around the world. Unfortunately it may have been a sort of one off special. They seem to do some specials fairly regularly and others when they happen to get something that has come available. The octopus is every few Sundays and, though I have had that from Japan to the Mediterranean, it was the only one I would describe as "melting in my mouth" it was so tender. This? If they would only let me know! I would rush over.

The pink is Polygonum coccineum and the white is a daisy like wild plant that is very common along this shore and the region.

I was wrong, it is closely related Polygonum coccineum. This is one of my favorite late summer to fall blooming plants. I have some in my yard that I mow around so they can seed and make food for winter. In masses, which we occasionally see on woodland edges, it can be like a pink haze. Behind is some of the Potomac shore erosion that forms bays which trap all sorts of flotsam. Much of the shore is now protected by large rocks, but where there is a gap or water gains a foothold a bay forms.

Nice idea. Never seen such before. Far easier than loading them on a truck and more controlled on a road than herding.
