Squidwards

I had a good snorkel at lunch yesterday . There were squid! Lots of them.

They are amazing creatures. Always changing colors, hovering around, sometimes darting off, seemingly disappearing instantly.

There was lots of other good stuff out there yesterday too.

And now it’s another HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

Have a good weekend!

Road Repair (I hope!)

Last night coming home from work, the crooked pothole road around the corner was all graded and looks like time for a re-pave instead of a patch job. Yeay! That will be nice. The equipment is parked in a vacant lot nearby.

Had a god lunchtime snorkel yesterday . Not much in the way of pictures tho. Same Flamingo Tongues, but a nice puffer!

Have n enjoyable Wednesday!

Mission Failed

All i planned on doing this weekend was cleaning the house. I failed gloriously. Saturday I went to breakfast with friends, then lunch with a different group of friends, then saw the Batabanu Carnival Parade.

Sunday I went diving then went to a yoga class, and then mowed the yard . Below are some underwater pictures from yesterday.

And now it’s back to work on a Monday and I don’t mind going.

Have a great week like I’m going to have!

Endurance Wreck Found!

Endurance: Shackleton’s lost ship is found in Antarctic!

Super cool, beautifully preserved ship the Endurance was found in The Wendell Sea.

Read the article and see the video HERE. The ship was trapped in sea ice for a long time before being crushed and finally sinking. The crew made their getaway by walking across the ice and small boats.

I think it’s a very interesting article and beautiful ship. 10,000 feet is too deep and Antarctica is too cold for me to dive though. Or else I would!

Have a great day!

Summer Stormtime

It’s that time-a year again..

Looks like we’re gonna get a rainy weekend. 🌧 Maybe it’ll be all right Friday day and Saturday morning. I sure would like to go diving and test out my new underwater camera.

Actually it might not be so bad overall, The newer data is starting to show the center moving more north than the pictures above.

We already got the rain we needed, now I have to worry about it quitting raining so I can mow the yard!

Damn good coffee this morning. Every day, I use precise measurements and get pretty consistent results but sometimes it’s just damn good, better than normal, coffee. Today’s is exceptionally good.

Have another fantastic day!

UPDATE! Now it’s Tropical Storm Elsa!

Last Day Of May

It was a very good weekend, overall. Went out to dinner Friday with a dozen or so friends. It was really wonderful.

Saturday, mowed the yard. And cleaned. A lot. Found some ancient, 2017 pasta in the pantry. And lots of rice Not expired. I’ll be eating rice forever.

The wife took the dogs overnight Friday night. When she brought them back Saturday morning. I was not really very nice. I don’t like her being uncomfortable and she looked uncomfortable and small Saturday morning. No matter how she treats me or what she does, I never want to be mean to her. I felt bad after she left and later, I apologized on a voicemail. Later still, I invited her out to a “nice” lunch on Sunday. She accepted and we had a good lunch and it was very nice, like old times. I made her laugh. It was odd saying good-bye in the parking lot, I’m used to us to getting in the car and going home like normal. I almost forgot to say good-bye, I took a step towards the car and she didn’t, and I remembered, “Oh yeah”. and it all came flooding back and I felt like bursting out into tears.

I’d rather be angry, sorta, sorta not. Being angry seems more powerful and in-control feeling.

Sunday morning earlier, I went diving. it was a good dive. But it was sunny and clear when we went under and almost completely overcast when we got out. Then it rained, definitely because I mowed the yard.

Below is a video of that my favorite fish, a juvenile Spotted Drum and below that, some other pictures from yesterday.

And now it’s another Monday It’s a holiday in the US, first day of summer.

Have a great week!!!
