"Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It sounded like the folks swimming were from the Netherlands...
all I know is their skin is probably still soaking up the lotion!!!
Mono Lake is more than 2 1/2 times saltier than the ocean!!!

Darryl and Ruth :)
Thank you so much ArtMuseDog and Carol!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks 'Tsuki! I agree...but I really like the effect when it works!!!
Thank you Darryl and Ruth! It is very salty...and a fascinating place!!!
I didn't know about the extra-saltiness either. Lovely photo (as always - you are good!).ReplyDelete
Oops. Just realized I spelled your name wrong in replying to your comment yesterday. So sorry!!ReplyDelete
I never knew it was that salty either. I just had now to google and see how salty the Dead Sea is and here's what I found:ReplyDelete
The Dead Sea is 33.7 % Salinity - The oceans average 3.5% salinity. So the Dead Sea is Roughly 10 times a salty as the Oceans.
Bibi...A lot of people who visit Mono Lake have been to the Dead Sea and swum in it...lot's of questions about swimming in Mono, but only these swimmers that I've seen!!! From what I understand, swimming in Mono is like swimming in Salt Lake...heavier water, a bit of a slimey consistency, you float easily but swim slower, and when you come out, you're covered with salt dust and quite dry skin!!! Not my cup of tea!!!ReplyDelete
Love that quote, and it seems like every year we need to hear that message more and more.ReplyDelete
Definitely words to live by Margaret!!! Leave it to Emerson to get the words just right!!!ReplyDelete
Salty? We can all float?ReplyDelete
I like the silhouettes against the sun-reflected lake. Lovely photo, and wonderful Emerson quote.
thank you Genie!! Yes...very salty...and yes...everybody floats!!!ReplyDelete
A fine composition, Kathy.ReplyDelete
hee hee....«Louis» got salt flakes on him just thinking about being in that salty water!
I know what you mean Louis!!! At the end of a three our docent afternoon, I can taste the salt after I've left the area!!!ReplyDelete
