Welcome to Saturday Show & Tell – the 7th edition. I have set this to post automatically because today, April 9th, I will be at Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie, Texas getting married to the fellow I often mention in my blog posts. So if it takes me a few days to respond to comments, I hope you understand!
First up in this week’s blog carnival is Jennifer Miner, who brings us a playful post called, Los Angeles Pillow Fight Day Photos. I had never heard of a public pillow fight before, but apparently:
Los Angeles Pillow Fight Day is held annually to coincide with International Pillow Fight Day — what a fun excuse to head downtown and bop strangers on their heads with feather pillows
Next up, C. in Oz gives us the lowdown on Learning to Surf in Australia. Although it wasn’t easy, C. certainly had the right inner monologue going:
Something about the promise of these shores opened a part of my mind that said: You can learn to stand up on an impossibly skinny wooden stick! You can share the water with teenage boys whose middle name is “Danger.” You can wear a wetsuit in public!
As an aside, I actually met a fellow who had Danger as his middle name. I’m not kidding; I checked out his driver’s license.
Katie Sorene offers a sobering post entitled Why Scuba Diving Could Soon Become Extinct which details the environmental impact humans have on the ocean. The damage is not simply from scuba divers, as she explains:
Changing the way scuba diving is currently conducted is imperative. Yet what may cause the complete demise of the breathtaking coral reefs is what we are doing here on land.
My contribution this week is the Space Needle photo at the top of this post, which I took a couple of years ago while visiting a friend in Seattle. Such a fun trip! And, yes, I am homesick for the Pacific Northwest.
