Nochain, that reminds me of our one and only trip to Hawaii.  We stayed on Kauaʻi, the Garden Island, where no building can be taller than a palm tree.  They filmed the helicopter sequence at the beginning of Jurassic Park on Kaua'i.

One day we took a kayak trip up a slow river, up a tributary as far as we could go, tied our kayaks off and hiked to a waterfall emptying into a swimming hole and our guide laid out a lunch spread for our group.  It was really nice... except for the kayaks.  I don't know about the comfort of other kayaks, but the ones we used were uncomfortable and my back ached before the trip was over.

I wanted a kayak until then, but not anymore.

I highly recommend Kaua'i, though. It was gorgeous! There were lots of things to do there too. The beaches don't compare to the ones we have in the Pensacola area, but the snorkeling was much better once you get out past the beach.

That one HAS to be a photoshopped image.  That ship needs deep water and it looks like it is OVER that spit of land in the background.

Edit: I guess it is real. There are a bunch of photos like that in Venice. The neighbors say the ships rattle the windows and shake the buildings when one goes by. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/15/world/europe/15venice.html?_r=0



Quote :
(In 2010), 619 passenger ships and 581 ferries made pit stops here — a de rigueur destination on many Mediterranean cruise itineraries — unloading more than two million visitors onto Venetian streets, usually for short stays. Most of the ships follow the same route to the passenger terminal, through the Bocca di Lido, the northern access to the lagoon, and then along Venice’s fish-shaped belly past St. Mark’s Basin and down the Giudecca Canal.

Local concerns are manifold, including questions about the pollution — water, noise and air — created by the giant ships, the impact on the lagoon’s ecosystem, and the potential erosion of the marble of Venice’s buildings and their underwater foundations.

When I lived on Innerarity Island, every hurricane would cause our causeway to flood.  Yes, we used a boat to get to home sometimes... at least, past the lower causeway.

Here's what our house looked like just about every hurricane.  Funny thing is, water NEVER went into the bottom floor... not even during Ivan.  I built 2 feet above FEMA's flood elevation and the Corps' 100-year flood elevation.



One day, after coming back over a flooded causeway, there was a car parked at the spot where the road went underwater.  It was full of pencil pushers with FEMA on their shirts in big letters and a bunch of 'em had clipboards.  They asked me if anybody flooded out on the Island.  I said "You're damn right people flooded out over there.  They built to the 5' flood level and I built at the 7' level and almost flooded."  

The next time FEMA flood maps came out, the minimum flood elevation for the Island was 7'.
