The Anthias has been out and about, no is bothering her.

The red fire fish has set up shop in a cave under the new torch. Finally came out for feeding tonight.

Spent the day at Bash Bish falls, Ny/Ma/Ct border. We have hiked to about 14 named waterfalls all over New England the past 3 years. Tack up another.

We hiked from the parking area up through the river to the falls, about a mile. Who needs a trail? But took over an hour. We dont rush nature. Stopped for pics and dips. Much needed R&R
Looks like a great day!

About a month and a half ago I decided it was time to see if sps of all types could survive in the tank. Headed to LFS, grabbed 6 rescues ($10 pieces mostly monti)

But one piece has really taken off the last few weeks.

Dog got a summer shave too ;)
I gave him clydesdale furry feet, a goat gotee, and a mohawk. I'll get pics of him all done later or tomorrow. Beat.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, albeit labor. Meeting a couple guy at a job sites tomorrow to hit the gym and do some construction, a paid working interview basically. . It will suffice and get money flowing in finally. Looking forward to losing 30-40 lbs if I stick with it through the summer.

Did you have a cave on a river? :)
I grew up surrounded by gorges. Cortland, NY / Ithaca, NY area. I have been known to spelunk and jump off cliffs. My personal record was a 125 foot jump, but regularly did 60-80 feet.

I've done that on a snowboard. But cant do the water. Had inner-ear surgeries and all but ruined watersports for me. I've been a fish my whole life my family tells me. Never got out of the water at the beach since I was 5

I think I have some old photos. I definitely have one of me going off a 60 foot cliff and one off a 45 foot bridge into a lake. May still be at my old house though. I will take a look this weekend.
