Thought we’d start the day with a cool picture and a fun fact about out marine world. This is a picture of the “Underwater waterfall” of Le Morne Brabant peninsula, Island of Mauritius.
This one is an illusion I believe BUT underwater waterfalls do in fact exist! If there is a difference in densities, such as between warm and cold water (colder being the more dense) the lower, colder, denser water can fall into fissures and depressions. In fact, some of the largest waterfalls on earth are located underwater!
Happy birthday to the iconic Bob Marley! Born this day in 1945 in Nine Mile, Jamaica. Bob’s music and philosophy has been a major part of my life since I was a teenager. So today we raise our glasses to him in celebration of his life. Cheers!
As some of you may know I (Shawn) am also a marine biologist so from time to time I like to post things I see that are interesting as I think on some level we all share the same love of the ocean…so why not learn a thing here and there about it…especially if they are this cool!
