Very nice! The window certainly brings out the contrasting colors.
Eastport lies across Spa Creek. The water taxi landing is just behind the 112 foot (34m) Jessica to the left. According to a web advertisement for Westport Yachts that one with registry in Bikini, Marshall Islands, was for sale at $5,995,000. In the old days, 1960s and 1970s, the boats tied up here were often working boats of the Chesapeake Bay watermen with loads of oysters or crabs or fish. It was not unusual to see several skipjacks in with their oysters. The last "working" skipjacks now largely have loads of tourists.
This is a recently added and very colorful mural on the formerly stark brick of the aquatic center. It cheers us an otherwise largely brick and concrete expanse.
Food stalls spilling into the front of William H Rumsey Aquatic Center. In a bit of a coincidence the Google imagery current as of 26 August 2014 must have been on such a day as the week-end market stalls are seen.
oh my... that looks pretty nice. Though I am not a huge fan of higher alc I love to have that what is called a "Schorle/Schoppe" over here.
Most that 0.5 litre is filled in a special way: 3/4 of it with wine (12-14%) 1/4 sparkling water. Prettty often our french friends take that without water and only need one to get happy... :)
Beer is about 3-6% alc. except special brews... I love it isotonic with no alc since it is better after running.
btw - what means "nominal alcohol"???
hey.... that looks like lots of delay...
Thank you Cinza, Wolfgang & Christiane for watching this 'crocodiled' one.
There are many who wonder - I must confess a selfie of me at my best.
Thanks kind friends longd.. and Diane
Thank you for L#10 and LIKE
Now that one certainly looks in pain.
Nice to see that without the old layer of yellow brown foam that used to flow downriver like dirty ice. The one at St. Mary's used to fill the river with those chemicals that made the foam so that fish caught as far as the sound tasted like paper mill—if there were fish. The one at Brunswick was already making money back then off the recovered waste products and testing the river to make sure their levels were trace. Stuff the others were dumping in the river went into tank cars to the chemical industry, at a profit, and the rest was burned in a ten or eleven story "recovery plant" with stack scrubbers to generate a large percentage of the power used by the plant. If I recall, Savannah was between Brunswick'a clean and St. Mary's filth as far as water and stack stuff went.
