MODEL TESTING WITH A GO PRO

Winter in Sonoma is a time of heavy rain; especially this year. With my son and grandson we have made and modified several shapes of boat to send down the swollen creek with a go pro mounted.

The experiments have led to changes in shape and stability.

Video of the event will follow.

THE RAPIDS

WORKING WATERFRONT, NEWPORT, RI

The Newport of my youth was a working waterfront. fishing boats, commercial boats and yachts co-existing side by side in the same water and the same docks.

Today, the is not a shred of evidence of this life.

HIGH GROUND

Humans have always seemed to been drawn to high ground. Even the children’s game “King of the Mountain”. was a way of teaching the philosophy. It is a phrase in language. A military tactical advantage. A phrase that means high moral standard. The words high ground have significance in all cultures and languages.
