and the only picture I managed to take was of this buffalo.
of course, this was shortly before I enjoyed eating his buffalo brethren, in a buffalo burger in Two Harbors.
A friend of the family very generously offered to take me on a tour of the Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. I was like, heck ya, and thank you very much. Lorraine walked me through the chamber, the valves, the procedures, and even let me walk around inside (in my sockied feet). Unfortunately, I was too excited to remember to take pictures. But this chamber is SO HUGE. Now I am considering becoming a Chamber Tender. However, the threat of fire happening in a pressurized chamber because of the pure oxygen in an enclosed space mightttttt be too much for my anxiety riddled self.
Afterward we played with the touch tanks in the USC Wrigley Marine Science Center.
All in all an eventful day on the rock.
