Slow TV Summer

Filed under: — Jaime @ 1:57 pm

Regular readers of The Gull Reef Club know that I one of my hobbies is to watch live webcams. I’ve been doing this for quite awhile now, starting, back in the day, with unsecured webcams (usually via Insecam) to watch people’s New Year’s Eve celebrations around the world.

Thanks to things like Periscope, YouTube, and even Twitter and Facebook Live, webcams have become ubiquitous. I no longer have to seek out unauthorized webcams just to peek at other parts of the world. Now, people are voluntarily putting live cams online for all of humanity to view.

Lately, one of my favorite cams to watch is the Geirangerfjord Cruise Port in Geiranger, Norway.

Geiranger is in the Arctic Circle; meaning this time of year, the sun never sets. This is the exact reason I keep tuning in. I have never visited any lands of midnight sun, and I don’t know if I ever will get the chance to go for real. (Plus, I just looked it up – it is 46 degrees in Geiranger right now. I’m not sure I want to be that cold in the summer ever). This is a nice way to experience the uniqueness of our world without breaking the bank.

I highly recommend tuning into this feed at 6p tonight or tomorrow. Today is the last day of spring and tomorrow the first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. Norway is six hours ahead of us here on the east coast, so if you tune in at 6p, you will see their bright, day-lit world at midnight. Ha det gøy!

Founding Flounder

Filed under: — Jaime @ 1:49 pm

Almost a year to date of our maiden boat voyage, I have finally caught my first keeper fish from said boat. A 17 inch southern flounder. Yes, it was delicious.
