port hardy in photos

Here are some photos of our town and the area surrounding it.Our lovely little rental house is an endangered species, a ranch, all on one floor. Excellent for my problematic knees and ankles. It would have made more sense to build the deck on this side, where there's a lot more space and still plenty of privacy. Instead, the deck is in the back, up against a neighbour's house -- which I'm guessing was built after ours. But these neighbours are rarely home, they are usually off exploring in...

I wrote about the “Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts », the officially leading French art school, a long time ago, almost ten years – see here. I mentioned then that some of the ancient buildings actually used to be part of a convent, the “Petits Augustins”. You can still find the chapel (after the Revolution used as a museum for monuments – now in general closed to public)… and the cloister. The cloister has kept three of the four sides with its arcades, but it’s al...

Best View

On our last day, we headed to the Shard to get a view of London from the 72nd floor. The sun was out so we got some great light. My friend, Lisa, who died a few years ago, went here and loved it. I thought about her as I looked at the view. Here it is from down the road. The Tower Bridge spanning the Thames. Futher away. Looking up. Saint Paul’s Cathedral. Afterwards, we had fish and chips. So good. This was in a former industrial area near the Shar...

Are Cruise Lines The Next Frontier for Lucrative Ancillary Fees?

Ordering room service aboard a cruise ship used to be included with the cost of a cruise — but now some cruise lines have been charging as much as $7.95 for room service; and other cruise lines are considering implementing a charge. Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean both already charge $7.95 for room service — other than for orders for continental breakfast — as of 2015 and March 2017 respectively. According to an announcement from Carnival Cruise Line — which... The post Are Cruise Line...

Breakdown: Woman Can’t Face the Idea of Four Hours in a United Coach Middle Seat

Every single day an inner battle boils in the skies, just below the service, threatening to bubble over. A passenger videotaped a woman melting down after boarding her United flight. She said she had four hours ahead of her in a middle seat. She declares "I can't do this." She complains also about the size of the two passengers on either side of her . She says she's small in comparison (she isn't), "I eat salad." But that's not what makes this story absolutely perfect. There's an Easter egg ...

Not Your Typical Australia Day: Brief thoughts on trepidation, friendship, and driving on the wrong side of the road

“You’re so close to me!” the Instagram message read. I had come to Prague, Czechia (formally the Czech Republic) on the spur of a moment ticket purchase after my Mum suggested it while I was weighing up my options on where to travel next while visiting friends in the Netherlands. I had no plans, no real idea even, what to do there but I booked a ticket since it was closer to Israel – where I was flying out of in a week – than the Netherlands. After a few days of sightseeing, I felt restless . S...

Kīlauea's 2018 eruption--what happened, and how soon can it come again?

The 2018 Kīlauea eruption is less of a news story months after it stopped, but what the heck happened there, and can it happen again soon? "The 2018 eruption of Kīlauea Volcano in Hawai‘i included both a summit caldera collapse and a flank fissure eruption, a complex event observed only a handful of times in modern history," wrote a team of more than 50 premier volcano experts in the January 25 issue of the journal Science. And the short answer to the second question above is no, it pro...
