Whoops I missed my 5th anniversary on Lumberjocks while I was on a cruise to North Queensland.
Did see a spectacular event at sea though.
A total solar eclipse 200 mile off Port Douglas.
If you haven’t witnessed one yet put it on your bucket list. It is an amazing scene.
5 years gone and seems like yesterday.
A good chance to say G’day to all my buddies & all LJ’s.

Tony: I saw a partial solar eclipse in Philadelphia a few years ago. I was at the zoo I was walking and I saw this strangest pattern on the sidewalk. It was individual leaf patterns from the trees that we were passing under The sun was not bright enough to cause a total immersion of light, instead we got diffused light that showed millions of tree leaves shadows on the sidewalk.

Truly amazing.

Thanks Jim & Karson.
Karson, the astronomer on the ship mentioned that effect with the trees as being something special. Unfortunately no trees on the ship.LOL.
