2019 Nautilus Expedition Highlights | Nautilus Live

It is fun to watch the scenes with those who shared the video and the camera's pilot—remarkable colors and shapes. I especially like octopuses.

The video seems not to want to appear. Try Googline or Duck Duck Go 

"2019 Nautilus Expedition Highlights | Nautilus Live"

 Joan, you've mentioned a couple of times that your videos are not showing but both times they were OK it must mean that only you are having problems 

Thanks, Stephen. I will withhold fussing until and unless I learn otherwise. 

Very weird creatures.

During the long school summer holidays, I would spend almost every day at one of the many museums in London, of course, the British Museum, but my favourites were the Kensington Museums, the Science museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and my favourite the Natural History Museum. The British Museum catered for my love of Classical Greek and Roman History and in those days the British Library was attached to the BM and I would get to sit at the same chair and desk that Karl Marx sat and later where Lenin sat. But my real joy was when I visited the Natural History Museum and see the statue of Charles Darwin In those days the barrier wasn't there.

Beautiful statue.

Your environment was very different from mine. I was born in a small wheat and pea farming town that was incorporated in 1889 and now has less than 1,000 population. Several moves in my lifetime, I am now living near a small lumbering town incorporated in 1903 and now has a bit over 2,000 population. In both towns, there is a rich Native American history that can be found with a little hunting around and talking to those who know. 

Joan  In the eighties my Union sent me for training to a village near Milton Keynes and I think the population was about Ten thousand and Milton Keynes was just a few miles away, so in effect, it was more like a suburb than a village. You will laugh at me when I tell you that for the three weeks I stayed there I hardly got a wink of sleep the lack of traffic noise and the Dawn chorus of Bird song drove me crazy.

The moment I got back home to London I fell fast asleep. 

Funny Stephen!

Living in a deep forest, I love the sounds of nature and lack of traffic noise as I do now. My Spokane home, where I lived for 40+ years, was half a block from THE major arterial out of downtown going south. Buses, trucks, cars, motorcycles, and vehicles modified to make a lot of noise were my daily lot. I don't remember missing the noise, but I do remember missing colors. My back yard was ablaze with color all year long, and I wept for the yearning for reds, yellows, blues, and shades of whites. I am well adjusted to a constant display of greens all year long. Having a greenhouse helps. 

I think we are spoilt in London we have so much greenery with parks and common land all over London. I have to admit I've become used to the city noise.

This my local Paddington Recreation Ground. The Apartment blocks in the background is where I live. The building on the left is mine and my balcony is four from the top.

Beautiful. Cities need green too.

This is beautiful.

We have cut so many trees in Nairobi soon it will be all concrete
