If this were a painting, it would win a stupid award - people are line crazy now. It’s actually a mistake photo from my phone. It does appear to be my hair in motion.

"The National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD has announced that they are exploring plans to close their dolphin exhibit. The aquarium is considering some big moves forward in light of the rapidly changing public views on cetacean captivity and marine conservation. These plans include possibly building a seaside sanctuary to which the aquarium’s eight dolphins would be relocated, as well as building facilities where rescued marine animals could be rehabilitated and released. The oldest of the dolphins, Nani, who is now 42, was captured from the wild in 1975 and transferred to the National Aquarium from a facility that closed, while the other 7 dolphins were born in captivity. The aquarium reports that they are working with experts, veterinarians and marine biologists to determine the best next steps for the dolphins." - Sea Shepherd Crew
This is a great step towards big changes in how society views marine parks. The public’s view on captivity is changing, and even if these dolphins don’t end up in a sea pen, it will spark interest in other zoos/parks holding marine mammals.  Photo by Kenneth K. Lam.

Tornadoes freak me out as much as a rogue wave would. On second thought, I think a rogue wave might be worse since there really isn’t a basement or true shelter to retreat to.
