If you’re going to get wet …

… you might as well pause to take a photo first. Somewhat unbelievably: no filter.

DC reporting in, #9: Miami

Lizard

I’m behind behind in posting my reports – so much has happened in the last 12 days that I’ve got to play catch up (but then more things happen and one gets further behind, and also what with photos needing to be edited and sorted … la la la). Anyway: so, yes, Miami. As you could already see from the two iphone photo snapshots I posted last week I went to Miami. Precisely I went to visit my friend E, who is there right now, and we had a lovely five days, full of sunshine and meeting E’s lovely friends and lizards and boats and walking and fooood and Corona (a beer made from rice and corn, who knew? I wish I had!) and verdant grenery and Banyan trees and and and … it was great! I did get a bit of a sunburn on the last day (seems that I am incapable of leaving Florida without one, as that makes it 2 for 2).

I’m running a bit late with my needing-to-go-to-the-library-ness, as I’ve been doing website admin things on various pages for the last two hours (so it’ll be a late night @ the LoC, I reckon), so that’s it for now … but I leave you with two Miami photos, in slightly larger than usual-for-a-report-from-DC size. As always, click to enlarge.

Solitüde

Flensburg, Solitüde

It was cold but sunny this morning, and so I decided to head out to Solitüde (see above for an overview shot) for a walk before I went shopping. The sand was frozen, which made for an unusual walking experience, and the marshy grass was covered with a thin coating of ice as well, above the liquid puddles below. It was also windy – not too windy, as you can tell from the lack of foamy crests on the waves, but since my eyes start tearing up pretty much as soon as there is more than even the slightest suggestion of a cold breeze it made photographing a bit of an obstacle course. Most of the time I was photographing without seeing too clearly, and I shall spare you the details of what my glasses and the (thankfully protected!) display on my camera looked like (salt water makes interesting trails when it dries).

I also need to find gloves that I can wear and still operate the camera, as that, too, became a bit of a challenge after a while. But: fresh air was had, photographs were taken, and tear ducks were cleaned. So it’s a win-win-win, really. :-)

Apollo 8 mission control

So, today was day 1 at the Kennedy Space Center – I went on the first of the two specific tours they offer – “Cape Canaveral, then and now,” and we got to see a lot of the old launching pads for unmanned Air Force and NASA rockets, as well as for Gemini, Mercury and Apollo missions, as well as some of the command centers for the specific missions and programmes. After the specific tour there was time to do some more looking around (I’ve seen far less than 50% of the center so far, eek), and saw another Saturn V rocket, among other things. (More photos, as always, are in the USA 2012 photo album.)

Cape Canaveral

Went to Cape Canaveral itself after the KSC closed at 6pm, and shall head back to the KSC tomorrow early morning right for the moment they open. Will I need three days there? Who knows! Come back here to find out :-).

Florida City, FL

Key West, upon the 'Sarah'

I spent pretty much the entire day at sea, sailing, kayaking and snorkling, and a fantastic day it was, but not conductive to photography, as my camera is not waterproof at all, and there was a lot of water contact going down today. I took the waterproof one-use camera along, we’ll see what those pictures turned out like in a couple of weeks. For now, two photos from aboard the Sarah.
