The climbfish have now evolved to cover my life in the US - including very exiting life in downtown Baltimore (aka the wire) and ocean research expeditions with NOAA. I don't promise frequent updates but I will try and cover the most and least exiting times here. Enjoy!

No snow, where to go?

Mardi gras beads and a sexy hat is all you need.
Happy Mardi Gras!
We celebrated at work yesterday with some beads, gumbo and a king cake. Good stuff. Also prime time to meet some colleges that I hadn't had the chance to talk to. Met this nice guy and started telling my story and what I thought about my new job (all positive so far). Then asked what he was doing, turned out he was the director for NCCOS that my unit is organized under. Just a little embarrassed that I didn't know. Start paying attention. Start paying attention. Start paying attention...
Bob looking smug in his warm beard knowing his
wetsuit is at least 10 degrees warmer then mine. Bastard.
This weekend was a long one as we celebrated President day on Monday. I stroke a sweet deal with Poseidon and he was nice enough to send a clean NE swell towards the coast on that very day. Me and Bob were quick to capitalize the opportunity to get out of the city for a day and took the 3 hour trip to Jersey Shore. Finally some quality waves around here! So good to be in the water again, it almost makes up for the lack of snow - if just it wasn't so damn cold!
Sexwax on, next stop Ocean City theme park.
It could have been us (if we weren't exhausted after 2 hours in the cold water).
Jersey Shore in the background, two happy tired shadows in the foreground.
Bob getting warm again on the boardwalk, enjoying the quiet sunny day.
Have a feeling that in 3 months from now this place is going to be filled with screaming
children with melting ice creams. Winter might not be that bad after all.
What else to do, except for baking? On Saturday it was warm and sunny so I spend the day on the Frisbee golf course while Anna was sweeting with her midterms. Almost start to feeling bad about all the work she has to do while I play... But then again, playing can be hard work too.

We all got different styles...
Andy going for the basket.
And I have kept my promise to myself and gone swimming quite a lot lately. Took my gopro camera to analyze my crawl over and under water the other day and compared with some Youtube lessons I have been studying. Got work to do...

Cap and glasses check, now all I have to do is to learn how to swim.
Dropping my arm, breathing to long, kicking to slow, lifting
my head to much. Dough! It looked so easy on youtube.
