歇伏

小时候看别人家养鸡,学到了一个常识,就是夏天鸡是不下蛋的,天太热了,热得连鸡都没了下蛋的情绪,还有个名词,叫作 歇伏。

我这blog没想到这个夏天也歇伏了,原因多个,不过这天太热了着实是原因之一。德州今年夏天两个多月滴雨未下,每天都是100来度,就是坐在家里也常常汗流浃背,按同事的说法,恨不得全家围坐在冰箱旁开着冰箱门“烤”手。所以说,坐在宛如桑拿房中的电脑旁,实在不是件惬意的事情。对了,我家的电脑DELL居多,这么热的夏天为了居家安全,还是小心火烛比较好。

当然了,其它的事情也很乱,和律师一起总算把年前Jiffy Lube的官司搞定了,在老美如何打官司这人生也完整了一回。最后的结局不能说是最理想的,不过还是可以接受的。公司里也忙,周末陪着小的一起学琴也挺好玩的,当然了还每天迷着ppstream的反恐24hours, 对了,ppstream是海外华人一大福音啊,什么凤凰卫视阿,台湾中天啊,香港翡翠啊,中央一套啊,都可以看,反恐24hours天天转圈放,比跟着fox一集集追有意思多了。(我家有台电脑专门连着电视的)

当然了,上面的都是借口,懒就是一个字,人,总是喜欢耍懒的,不过有些对不起看我blog的朋友了。所以,慢慢的,天也凉了,我又会开始重新下蛋了,大家还是不要计较我之前偷懒,接着捧场吧,对了,圣诞节你们想去什么地方玩啊?人生总要有个盼头不是,即使在炎热的盛夏。

小宝学琴

这一阵子在网上逛的日子少了, 原因之一是我家的小宝开始学钢琴了.

好不容易, 看来看去, 趁着暑假咬牙把钢琴买了. 在老美这儿, 卖钢琴的完全是垄断事业, 和卖车的是两码事儿, 结果和卖车dealer磨练的砍价本事, 在买琴这儿完全用不上, 因为一个城市一个dealer, 而且利润极高, 作为dealer并不是很急要卖的样子, 总之和这儿的家俱店类似了.

琴买了, 自然要找老师教了. LD听同事的推荐, 好不容易趁暑期的功夫, 挤到了一个俄罗斯老太太的45分钟session. 这个周末是第一次上课, 我们去听了听, 老太太的琴弹的非常不错, 教起来也得心应手, 毕竟教了好多年了, 只不过这英文还是口音重了点, 按理说, 学音乐的耳朵应该比常人敏锐吧.

陪小宝学琴, 陪小宝练琴, 我自己也乐此不疲. 印象中似乎也是我第一次摸钢琴(买钢琴过程中的不算). 坐在琴前, 想象中自己学成后, 劳累一天下班, 来上一首mozart的曲子, 何等的”爽心悦耳”啊. 嗯, 能和小宝一起学, 两个人一份学费, 不吃亏.

坚持, 坚持下去.

在路上: 2006 Alaska Glacier Wildlife Cruise (二)

船开出不久, 海面渐渐开阔, 而两岸的风光也越来越有特色, 时而冰川, 时而瀑布,山势低的地方都是松林密布, 而高处多是绿色的植被和白雪皑皑的冰川交汇在一起, 错落有致. 忽而, 船上的人都往一侧的林间望去, 我另有相机的高倍镜头, 左看右看, 才发现原来大家看的是bald eagle(秃头鹰), 老美的国鸟, 只可惜离的太远了, 只有那白白的脑袋在松林中, 还显出些特征来.

海的颜色也非常的迷人, 阳光下显出一种纯净的湖蓝色. 想着十几年前Exxon Valdez的油船漏油事故, 在脑海中似乎还有当年电视新闻的影子. 当年的事故是由于油船在Prince William Sound这片海域躲避浮冰后而没有回到它自己正常的航道, 进而触礁, 大约11 million gallon的石油泄露到海上, 造成了巨大的生态灾难. 而如今, 望着这片平静的海面, 很难想象到当年的景象, 不过我们的船长提及某些海滩至今还有当年的漏油, 而当时造成的海洋生态危机, 有好些即使到今天也没有完全恢复过来…

Prince William Sound这片海域, 被周围的陆地环绕, 相对封闭, 属于内海, 加上众多的岛屿, 水道狭窄. 来来往往的船只有的时候凑得满近的. 这其中, 有油轮, 有鱼船, 有我们这样的游船, 加上偶尔可见的浮冰… 难怪我们的船长常常拎起他的超大号望远镜了望海面, 当然他更想看的是有没有什么值得看的水上生物…

这一会看到了人家当地正中的渔船捕鱼了, 原来一大一小两条船, 找一处鱼儿过往密集的水域, 扯开一张大网, 等着鱼儿自动上钩, 只不过他们往往一清早就开工了, 这会儿该收了.

这不, 船长慢慢地把船靠近一艘正在拉网的鱼船, 让我们看了个痛快, 原来这鱼船是他叔叔的. 看着他们一点点把网拉起来, 满网的salmon, 忽然让我想起finding nemo里面的一个镜头了. 幸好salmon里面没有聪明的领头鱼, 否则, 呵呵, 他叔这小船也够呛…

在路上: 2006 Alaska Glacier Wildlife Cruise

Valdez的Glacier Wildlife Cruise我是在临走前才订的, 原来想着sea kayaking来着. 不过最刺激是Columbia Glacier Sea Kayaking, 大家多半看过它的宣传照, 就是两个人在海面的浮冰群中”孤独地”划着一艘小独木舟, 那一定是永生难忘的感觉. 可惜它的整个行程是八个多小时, 包括三小时的kayak时间, 我们家的小朋友还太小, 很难实现这个愿望. 另外去年底在Puerto Rico深夜海上荡舟看发光生物的经历, 让LD一听sea kayaking就有些打怵, 所以我考虑再三, 把原先订的一个近海kayaking给取消了, 换成了Stan Stephens Glacier & Wildlife Cruises. 不过如果以后小宝长大了, 我们有机会重游Valdez的时候, 这个项目还是想给补上的. 写在这儿算是许个愿吧.

十一点半前赶到上船的地方, 看见两个MM正爬在船外面做清洁, 船比我想的要大一些, 上下两层, 上面一层一半是在外面的, 下面一层船头也可以看, 总之非常方便. 我们上船跑到上层找了个带桌子的座位, 方便吃东西, 呵呵. 不过船上气氛十分轻松, 大家都是走来走去的, 所以你去晚了也不要怕占不到好位置什么的. 十二点, 正午, 船鸣了鸣喇叭, 出发了.

Valdez small boat harbor出海的地方, 前面的小船是出去钓鱼的…没想到他们走的也这么晚?

我们今天的运气非常好, 晴空万里, 海平如镜. 要知道, 之前已经有两个多星期都是阴雨天了, 难怪一船人连船长都很兴奋, 绝好的出海时候…

出发了…

那么大家跟着我的镜头看看我们都看到了什么吧…

这艘船其实停在我们码头不远, 是艘美国海岸警卫队的船, 没看出有什么重型武器来, 也许象征意义更大吧.

出海不久船上就一阵骚动, 原来远方海面上飘来一群小东西, 原来是我们见到的第一个海洋生物: sea otter (海獭). 上船的时候拿了张此行或许会见到的动物的宣传小册子, 小宝连忙做了标记.

这海獭生活那叫一个闲适, 在海里是清一色的仰游, 偶尔打个滚儿, 总之很可爱的样子.
