Lately I've been feeling a bit like a little pink shrimp about to be thrown into a pot of boiling seawater.  After quite a few months of wishing and waiting and planning umpteen million different plans A and B all the way to Z and back again, now the time of chaos is upon us.  And don't get me wrong, chaos can be fun, but when the heat is turned up and maybe another unknown/unplanned/hardship falls into the pot things can seem a little frightful.  In past months, we could feel the hot salty water licking our feet, and now, we are submerged.  Its sink or swim.  Luckily, I think I'm a pretty good swimmer.

More on life changes to come...  In the meantime, I thought I would show you a few more photos from Norway.  And what does one do when thou has caught half a ton of shrimp?  When the research, the studying, the learning of crustaceans has passed, one must feast.  And feast we did.  The crew set up a boiler on the deck of the boat, threw in some seawater, added a bit more salt for taste, dumped in freshly caught shrimps and voila dinner served.  Never have I eaten more shrimp, nor more delicious shrimp.


  1. Looking forward to hearing about what is to come for you and Pablo!

  2. The shrimp look yummy. I bet it was actually fun to need a winter coat.
