Kids in the Marina April 1 2010

It’s an interesting sight seeing kids running up and down the docks in La Cruz.  When we first arrived, there were several families getting ready for the puddle jump, and the docks were busy with lots of kids ranging from 4-12 on their scooters.  I call the following picture the Scooter Gang.[singlepic id=276 w=568 h=424 [...]

On board Oblivion is a set of necessary devices:  a barometer and a clock.  Both are beautiful pieces—round, brass, nautical looking pieces.  The barometer is accurate as far as I can tell.   I have not become familiar with the barometer much and leave that device to others.  But the lovely clock is a bit of [...]
