Paradise Found - Oswald West, Oregon Coast - January 22nd, 2017

Sunshine after a brief bout of thunder, lightening, and hail at the coast yesterday. Always such a thrill to be out in nature, even when the weather doesn’t know what it wants to do  ⚘ Photography by Haley Willner

During the 1960s, octopus wrestling was a popular sport in the West Coast of the United States. It involved a diver grappling with an octopus in shallow waters before dragging it to the shore. In fact, there was even an annual World Octopus Wrestling Championship which would be held in Washington. When the so-called sportsmen were done with the octopuses, they would then either eat them, give them to an aquarium, or return them to the sea.

I love the dignity in the name Philadelphia, but at heart, we’re Philly.
