Mt. Etna eruption and the results...

my 6am walk to find a good spot to photograph Mt. Etna erupting

the best place I could find without a car 

I came home to raining ash and a very huge mess to clean up

We got an underwater camera!

Gene and I have been wanting an underwater camera all summer so we finally got one! We were to hot and lazy to carry our kayak across the street so we rented a paddle boat instead :) They have paddle boats for rent right outside our apartment and they are already in the water which makes it very convenient. So we paddled over to the island, anchored, and went snorkeling. The next day Darius Rucker was giving a free concert on the base!
