I just got an Oceania Brochure!

Recommended Posts

I got O brochures all the time, even though I've never sailed with them.  I guess I must have requested one at one time and then the deluge began!  I would just throw them out without even opening one.

However, then came Coven-19 and I did not receive any brochures at all.

I didn't even realize I missed them until TODAY when in my mail is one for Oceania.

 

So excited.

 

I will open this one up and read what's inside.  It's "islands and Wonders."😃

I was lucky, there were TWO in my mail today 😊

 

I also got "Islands & wonders" and the other is "Classical embrace".

 

Edited to add: When I read mine I am going to open this live underwater cam near Port of Miami on youtube to get the full effect!

 

 

"The Coral City Camera is an underwater camera streaming live from an urban reef in Miami, Florida. It is located along the shoreline at the east end of PortMiami in about 10’ (3m) of water. It was deployed by Coral Morphologic as a hybrid art-science research project produced with Bridge Initiative and Bas Fisher Invitational and initially funded through grants awarded by a Knight Arts Challenge grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and an Art Works grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The Coral City Camera provides a fish-eye view into the urban marine ecosystem that has developed around the human-made shorelines of Miami. The project was launched with the idea that the incredible biodiversity living just below the waterline in Miami should be a point of civic pride that engages the public to protect what they know and love. The riprap boulder shoreline along PortMiami demonstrates that human infrastructure can offer imperiled species with refuge and functional habitat in unexpected urban locations as well as serve as conveniently accessible research sites.

 

While the abundance of fish and marine life makes for a real-life aquarium screensaver you can enjoy all day, the Coral City Camera also serves as a valuable scientific tool to monitor the health and wellbeing of this underwater life in a non-invasive fashion. Coral Morphologic is working with ACCRETE from NOAA to sample and record the site’s water parameters while using the camera as a research tool to monitor a coral nursery that houses fragments of brain corals (Pseudodiploria strigosa) from urban habitats in order to investigate their resilience. We are also working with Rescue-a-Reef from the University of Miami to use the site to identify the hardiest genotypes of staghorn (Acropora cervicornis) and elkhorn (Acropora palmata) corals that have been propagated in their offshore nursery in Biscayne National Park".

Speaking from the standpoint of an avid hoarde.........Ahem.......Marime Enthusiast,

Travel Brochures from this particular period of time are sure to become collectors items.

 

What is that old saying about an ill wind?

We have been receiving them regularly, but I will admit -- not in the quantity they have come in the past!  I have been tossing them since we don't expect to be cruising any time soon ...
