From the Washington Post, The oceans’ circulation hasn’t been this sluggish in 1,000 years, and that’s bad news.
Once upon a time I came across same killer whales (orcas) in Alaska, off the coast of Seward.
I’ll guess that I’ve spent at least two or three months of my life living in a particular hotel in Virginia Beach (including finishing the Scala Cookbook there), and this photo/painting is an ode to that place.
A quote from the first article: “Currently rated to 4,500m, which gives researchers in-person access to about 2/3 of the ocean floor, the most recent upgrade increased the depth rating of many of the vehicle’s systems, making it just steps away from having a depth rating of 6,500m, or approximately 98% of the seafloor.”
Mama always told me not to look into the eye’s of the Sun ... sunrise in Virginia Beach, April, 2017.
Here’s another photo of the Moon rising over the Atlantic Ocean, Virginia Beach, Virginia.
I don’t have a camera to do it justice, but the moonrise is pretty tonight.
Finally got a picture of a seagull this morning. :)
I’ve made some good progress on my new book on Scala and functional programming recently. For whatever reason I had been having writer’s block, so I came out to the beach for a little while to help clear out my brain, and today in particular was very productive. For a while now I’ve known how the book would end, but I was having a problem getting from where I was to the end, and I got through most of that today.
In a slightly related note, here’s a blurry photo of a military ship out on the ocean.
