Kyoto: Arashiyama

I woke today and found something red floating in our pond, so decided to check on it.

Even approaching the pond I saw something was terribly wrong, water lily pads were floating all acrosss pond apparently severed from the roots.

Visit to Hawaii in 2011, Turtle beach and Dole plantation

One of the weekend days we decided to try and visit Laniakea turtle beach again in hopes to finally see some wild sea turtles.

During our previous visit we came too late and did not see any turtles, so we departed earlier this time.

Autumn Nara, day 1

Since we were tired after the long travel and late bedtime, we woke up pretty late and only left the hotel at about 11am.

Birds in Knoxville

I have been taking pictures of birds this spring from time to time with little time to process them. Finally I did some more pictures today and decided to process entire backlog.

We start with pictures from first half of February where a big flock of American Robins decided to land near our grocery store.

This is going to be large amount of bird pictures.

Gatorland and Kennedy Space Center

On Monday work-related activities started for me and Ksusha decided to go see places with our friends. She returned with some pictures and it seems I also want to go there sometime later Wink

First stop was at Gatorland, a theme park and a wildlife preserve known for its wide variety of alligator and crocodile species.

September trip to Cray, Mendota Heights (Minnesota)

Another kind of late post about a past trip. Hopefully It'll be the last one and the rest would appear much sooner after the trip or perhaps even in almost real time?

So in September 2009 right after our Hawaiian vacation I was asked to come help Cray with some matters and spend two weeks at their facility in Mendota Heights which is a small town near Minneapolis in Minnesota. This entry won't touch any of the Cray bussines, though. It'll concentrate on various things we saw in the area.

First thing we noticed was significantly higher amount of wandering Canadian geese often crossing street at random.
