...nice. I like that fading lights from purple to blue. Reminds me on Philli 2008

Have discussed Lisbon in late Sept. ... Thank god actually there is shown a report about toxic gases insides a plane. Makes things easier to plan :]

yep.... that looks like those things I am looking for :)

Blue hour sure is a thing one must love. Will post these ones the next time when pause the Grand Circle.

Beautiful, not hot, stiff breeze after hurricane Arthur sucked heat and humidity out of the region. Here, as all along East Potomac Park, high tides or high river flow tops the sea wall in a chop or completely floods when really above normal.

Oh well, even in Micronesia I shivered and groaned at the prospect of getting in the water. After initial agony of chill I did find it nice though. Speaking of those sharks, I was more worried about the salt water crocs. Two coworkers and I had a few days before we had to take a small boat up to the northern end, Ngarchelong. Our navigation station was right above these monoliths. We paid the boat owner to take us through the Rock Islands and did some snorkeling. Once he dropped two of us off in water about 3m deep with a really beautiful beach maybe 500 m away. It was not a nice spot, about half way between the mangrove swamp (crocs) and an opening in the reef (sharks) with a bottom almost all covered in sea grasses up to 1m deep in spots. As we went down a second time we heard the prop buzz and came up to see the boat heading out of sight. Our non snorkeling colleague had asked to see the beautiful beach. So, there we were, at head level in the water seeing only water, sharks seaward, crocs landward and my diving colleague very worried about sea snakes (usually mild mannered if very toxic) we spent a half hour or so thinking of being food. I kept thinking of one of those 5 to 6m salt water crocs rising out of that grass for a snack. Supposedly they are non aggressive, but impressive. At the time Australian croc hunters were killing quite a few. I think they are more protected now.


Medieval Hell Cat?

Who knows! Maybe. the architect in 1930 had just read Alice in Wonderland with his children! :-)
