Heading into fall, the Maine coast often becomes very foggy. Here are two shots from my morning bike ride. At the start of the ride near the shore my glasses are constantly fogging up and it's all very mysterious; but once I gain enough elevation I look down on the fog which is very cool. Can you see the superstructure of the large cruise ship?

From my early morning bike ride: At this time of year little Seal Harbor, ME fills with boats. If you look carefully you'll see some very nice sailboats. Once the summer crowd disappears it's a very different story.

Love this work....
 
If you're interested in in situ methods for HPC, our collaborator E. Wes Bethel from Lawrence Berkeley National Lab is presenting an accepted State-of-the-Art Report (STAR) paper at EuroVis2016 tomorrow, June 8. The paper brings together researchers, developers, and practitioners using in situ methods in extreme-scale HPC, presenting existing methods, infrastructures, and a range of computational science and engineering applications using in situ analysis and visualization. You can also find the abstract on the Kitware blog. Congrats to all of the authors! https://blog.kitware.com/paper-on-in-situ-methods-accepted-for-publication/

Here's a fun front page article in the Washington Post on lobstering on Little Cranberry Island, Maine. The lobsters are sent to China. This island is one of our favorite kayaking destinations, and yes I can attest that there are a lot of lobster buoys during season.

I celebrated my birthday with a new carbon wheelset and the first outdoor ride of the season on a cold but bright, sunny day.

With the season's change from summer to fall here in Maine we find that the kayaking becomes really spectacular due to moderating wind speeds and better morning and evening light. Here's some snaps from the Brooklin,ME area. We even find a little sand beach off of Seller's Island, a rarity along the northern Maine coasline.

What a view. All you now need is a good bottle of wine and some nice cheeses ... what a perfect place to sit and complement the view with.

Dreamy summer days

Susan and I took a trip to a little spit of an island "The Hub" near Bartlett Island which is across from MDI (Mt. Desert Island). There is a MITA (Maine Island Trail Association) campsite located on the island. MITA maintains the Maine Island Trail a 325 mile waterway from Casco Bay to Machias, Maine.

In the spring seals are born and raised on this island and you are not supposed to visit until after July 1. We saw lots of seals, harbor porpoises, and loons. Since it was July 4 the lobsterboats and other traffic was greatly reduced and we spent 6 hours on the water or swimming on gravel and stone beaches. One of our favorite things is to swim in the very cold water, and then go lie on a baking granite ledge, sort of like a sauna.

An epic off road bike ride, I got carried away, went way too far, and in the end got a flat tire (photo). The other 360 panorama was taken on the backside of Sargent Mountain on the Acadia carriage trials (the Around Mountain section neat signpost 10 see https://www.nps.gov/acad/planyourvisit/upload/CRUMmap.pdf). Fortunately the flat was on my beat up gravel bike and I had a spare inner tube and a CO2 cartridge so I made it home humbled but exhilarated.

Susan's Golden Chain Tree is blooming nicely this year. It wasn't too long ago (before the deer fence) that we thought the tree was dead.... a buck decided to rub his antlers on the tree and really damaged the bark.
