Good Morning October 19th 2018
Today in 1973 Richard Nixon rejects an appeals court decision to turn over the Watergate Tapes. Today in 1987 the U.S. Dow Jones Industrial Average loses 508 points or 22%, and is called black Monday.
It's the birthday of Oceanographer, Walter Munk (1917) who at age 101 still works for SCRIPS, who in 1963 lived with his family for almost a year in American Samoa to work on an experiment to prove ocean waves lose very little energy on their way around the globe, (thus founding modern surf forecasting.)
Munk also proved the same side of the Moon always faces the earth due to tidal locking.
First time I got to go on an international snorkel/dive trip was to Belize in 1981. I was fifteen and we drove down in a Datsun Pickup full of dive gear, and a portable compressor, back then it was hard to find a place to fill your scuba tanks, years later I decided it was time to take a break from my Job and see Belize through a greybeards eyes, to say that San Pedro Belize has changed is an understatement, they even have a hyperbaric Facility. I will post here about snorkeling,traveling, and stuff that happens along the way. Thank You for visiting! Burnie
