Questions: Fukushima ~ Is there an effect now?

fukushima__noaa_rad_plume

“The next leg of the long voyage was from Osaka to San Francisco and for most of that trip the desolation was tinged with nauseous horror and a degree of fear.

“After we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead,” Macfadyen said.

“We hardly saw any living things. We saw one whale, sort of rolling helplessly on the surface with what looked like a big tumour on its head. It was pretty sickening.

“I’ve done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I’m used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen.”

In place of the missing life was garbage in astounding volumes.

“Part of it was the aftermath of the tsunami that hit Japan a couple of years ago. The wave came in over the land, picked up an unbelievable load of stuff and carried it out to sea. And it’s still out there, everywhere you look.” (Source of ?’s)

Kamloops Trout: Caught & Released

A display of the upside down trout and the unraveling fly in its lower jaw. Somehow it still is a perfect moment…if not visually…physically for sure.

Nature & Memories to Sustain

east lake late SwittersB

Well, I was going to try and write something poetic, but truly I have no sense of the styles and rules of poetry. So, my thoughts centered around Winter, Cold, this Summer and Fall’s last trips, big Trout, photographic successes, sunsets and planning the next trip to renew the connections with nature and family. No wonder I gave up on trying to rhyme all that. Lost in thought, recollections & planning. Trout caught/released.

Pets: Now What is This ‘Vet’ Deal?

Ninnie to Vet B

Ninnie is the kitten we rescued July 4th. Here, the little Calico, is in a carrier enroute for a routine check up and like most cats quite skittish about not being in control of the unknowns…like us I suppose.
