Crossing the atlantic

When I saw this story today, I was reminded of a great book I read several years, Voyage of the Turtle: In Pursuit of the Earth’s Last Dinosaur by Carl Safina. He talked a lot about the journey’s that these amazing animals go on, traveling up to a thousand miles and more to return to where they were born.

Anyway, according to the article “Great White Shark Named Lydia Becomes First Known White Shark to Cross Atlantic” by Pete Thomas at GrindTV, Lydia has now traveled over 19,000 miles while crossing the Atlantic Ocean. Truly amazing.

Tag, your it

So this weekend it was officially spring like weather and because of that, we took some time to head over to one of our favorite parks, Russell E, Emmenegger Nature Park. While we were there, my daughter started using her new camera.

Her plan is to post her pictures for all to see and since she doesn’t blog, I told her I would post her pics and so here’s the first one. It seems that we’re not the only ones who like to visit the park.

Winter, spring, winter, spring

So which is it? Well, it looks like it might finally be spring here in the Midwest but wasn’t it just last month where we were in the 60’s? Anyway, apparently it’s not just me as evident by this bear cub.

You can see for yourself in this video over at Yahoo News entitled “Bear Wakes Early from Hibernation, Wanders onto Ski Slope” by Mike Krumboltz. Safe to say this is just another piece of evidence that whatever you want to label it, global warming or climate change,  something is going on.

Heaven help us!

Croc surfin safari

Now this is something you don’t see everyday, a crocodile doing a little surfing. Check out the video “Giant Crocodile Takes to Surf, Prompting Beach Closure in Australia” by Pete Thomas over at GrindTV. Heck, I didn’t even know they like to surf.

Hang Ten!
