Fort Jefferson, built on Garden Key of the Dry Tortugas, was constructed in the mid-19th century to protect the shipping lanes accessing the Gulf Coast of the United States. The deep-water anchorage nearby was critical for resupply and refit of vessels and shelter from seasonal Caribbean storms.

 

Although never actually completed, Fort Jefferson was the largest and most sophisticated in a chain of coastal forts situated along the U.S. coast from Maine to California, becoming a critical enabler to the Union Navy successfully blockading Confederate shipping during the Civil War. In addition to protecting the harbor, it became a prison for Union Army deserters and, for a time, Dr. Samuel Mudd - the physician who was convicted of aiding and abetting John Wilkes Booth.

 

A remote location, even today, it's hard to fathom the amount of labor and logistics involved in building and provisioning such a formidable structure with the level of precision and durability that allow us to continue to visit it in exceptional condition 175 years after the first bricks were emplaced.

The Taurus Woman: She's a genuine and sincere being. Her energy is wholesome and strongly rooted in a simplistic and non complicated lifestyle. She's an earth Goddess who will be there for you after the harshest storms. If she knows she can trust you, her loyalty will stand the test of time. Give her the truth and she will give you her whole world. It's as simple as that with her. [Words by Moon Omens]

 

Taurus in Love: Taureans are famous for their sensuality and their appreciation for beauty, art, and nature. They can be slow in making the first move but once in a relationship, they are loyal and devoted. Taureans look for stability: they want to share similar values and a long-term vision with their partner. [Words by Moon Omens]

 

In honor of my upcoming birthday, I thought it might be fun to celebrate myself.

Each with our unique neuroses

Benedictine stability is the context in which we learn to sit still with whatever company arrives, in the confidence that God in Christ sits still with us; and the practice of this sitting still (which may actually be working together or singing together at least as much as praying silently together) slowly permits us to stay in one place long enough for us to open up to God’s gift in whatever is encountered.

-Rowan Williams, The Way of St. Benedict

After a few years of stability, the Cardiff Bus fleet is now seeing a number of interesting changes, with the first batch out of a total of 36 electric Yutongs soon due as replacements for the remaining Transbus and Alexander Dennis Darts, and the remining Scania OmniCity artics.

 

The first sign of the fleet changes came earlier this year with the acquisition of a dozen Mercedes Citaros from Bus Vannin (numbered 141-52) to see off a number of the Darts and some of the 10 original shape Alexander Dennis Enviro300s. The withdrawal programme has been hastrened by the arrival of four Alexander Dennis E20D MMCs on hire from Mistral (numbered 271-4) and five Wright Solar-bodied Scania L94UBs and K230UBs (numbered 768-72) from Go South Coast's Swindon depot. A sxith Scania (773) has been acquired as a driver trainer.

 

After operating initially in all-over blue or in blue and green, the Scanias are in the process of receiving the company's new orange and red fleet livery. This November 2021 shot illustrates 770 as she enters Greyfriars Road in the City Centre, with the Big Wheel of the Winter Wonderland forming the backdrop.

For the sake of mental stability and even physiological health, the unconscious and the conscious must be integrally connected and thus move on parallel lines. If they split apart or "dissociated," psychological disturbance follows.

THE SKELLIG ISLANDS

 

The Skellig Islands (Irish: Na Scealaga), once known as the Skellocks, are two small, steep, and rocky islands lying about 13 km west of Bolus Head on the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland. The larger of the two is Skellig Michael (also known as Great Skellig) and together with Little Skellig are at the centre of a 364 hectares (900 acres) Important Bird Area established by BirdWatch Ireland in 2000.[1] Skellig Michael is also famous for an early Christian monastery that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 

Little Skellig

 

The smaller of the two islands is Little Skellig (Sceilg Bheag in Irish). It is closed to the public, and as well as being Ireland's largest northern gannet (Morus bassanus) colony with almost 30,000 pairs, it is also one of the world's largest, and is of international importance. The island is 134 m tall and is approximately 1.5 km eastnortheast of Skellig Michael.

  

Skellig Michael

 

Also known as Great Skellig (Sceilg Mhichíl in Irish), this is the larger of the two islands, with two peaks rising to over 230 m above sea level. With a sixth-century Christian monastery perched at 160 m above sea level on a ledge close to the top of the lower peak, Great Skellig is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 

Birdwatch Ireland were concerned that the Irish government allowed filming on a seabird sanctuary without third party consent. During the 2014 nesting season, Kittiwake chicks in nests were swept into the sea by the downdraught from a helicopter and devoured by gulls.

 

Wildlife

 

Both of the Skellig islands are known for their seabird colonies, and together comprise one of the most important seabird sites in Ireland, both for the population size and for the species diversity. Among the breeding birds are European storm petrel (Hydrobates pelagicus), northern gannet, northern fulmar (Fulmarus glacialis), Manx shearwater (Puffinus puffinus), black-legged kittiwake (Rissa tridactyla), common guillemot (Uria aalge), razorbill (Alca torda) and Atlantic puffin (Fratercula arctica) (with 4,000 or more puffins on Great Skellig alone). Red-billed chough (Pyrrhocorax pyrrhocorax) and peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus) can also be seen.

 

The surrounding waters have abundant wildlife with many Grey seal (Halichoerus grypus). Basking shark (Cetorhinus maximus), minke whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata), dolphin (Delphinidae), beaked whale, and leatherback sea turtle (Dermochelys coriacea) have also been recorded. The islands have many interesting recreational diving sites due to the clear water, an abundance of life, and underwater cliffs down to 60 meters (200 feet).

Blue is the color of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. -

My photograph focuses on the latter and shows Scania K230UB 772 cruising down Westgate Street in the City Centre in October 2021. She is distinctive in carrying an all-over blue livery, whilst others retain blue and green.

This is not an image constructed in Photoshop. My son-in-law likes building this kind of tricky balanced stone structures, so he built this one on our hike in Algonquin provincial park.

When everything changes and new ‘normals’ become routine. ....And though the seasons change quite dramatically where I live there is definitely comfort and stability in their cyclic repetition.
