At the beach

It’s funny how things work out sometimes. I was just at a point in The View from Lazy Pointwhere Carl Safina was on a coral reef diving trip and when I got to work this morning, I read this story by Chris from Newslook via Care2. The article is Australia’s Huge Marine Sanctuary Expansion” and it includes a short video.

One at a time

This story and subsequent article brought back thoughts to if I ever read the book Sand: The Never-Ending Story by Michael Welland. I know I checked it out but I don’t think I ever finished it, so I went ahead and requested it again.

The story was over at Yahoo! and is entitled “Tine Remnants of War Found in Omaha Beach Sand” by Corrie MacLaggan via Reuters and the article, “D-Day’s Legacy: Remnants of Invasion Linger in Beach Sands” over at Earth Magazine.

Life at the beach

Okay, this one couldn’t wait, I don’t know why. I think beachcombing is something I would love to do, even if I didn’t get paid for it. Anyway, it’s apparently a hobby or job that’s going by the wayside as it were. Check out “Dutch Beachcombers – A Dying Breed”, again from Chris at Newslook.

Happy Holidays!
