Majority of my captaining career has been spent here. Over the past 8 years, I have had the opportunity to study bottlenose dolphins for NOAA, rescue a variety of marine life (sea turtles, manatee, birds, etc.), and, most importantly, work under and learn from some of the best captains/naturalists I have had the pleasure of knowing. This city led me to some of my best friends, many of my favorite memories, and my lovely wife. It has taught me more than I can put into words. The SAMM will always be my home port. I will damn sure miss the ebb and flow of the Atlantic and the history St. Augustine has made for me. Just about a month till we are headed west. #naturephotography #nationalparks #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #nationsoldestcity #sunset #sunrise #Dolphins #travel #travelblogger #history #rv #fulltimerv #crosscountryroadtrip at Castillo de San Marcos National Monument

The International Spy Museum is a private non-profit museum dedicated to the tradecraft, history and contemporary role of espionage, featuring the largest collection of international espionage artifacts currently on public display. Did you know: It is the first and only public museum in the United States solely dedicated to espionage and the only one in the world to provide a global perspective on this all-but-invisible profession. #washington #dc #capitol #travel #doubledecker #tour #bus #usa #adventure #life #inprogress #faith #hope #love #explore #spy #museum #history

The real 1903 Wright Flyer. This is the actual airplane built and flown by the Wright brothers, Wilbur and Orville. The Wrights pioneered many of the basic tenets and techniques of modern aeronautical engineering, such as the use of a wind tunnel and flight testing as design tools. Their seminal accomplishment encompassed not only the breakthrough first flight of an airplane, but also the equally important achievement of establishing the foundation of aeronautical engineering. https://airandspace.si.edu/collection-objects/1903-wright-flyer #wrightflyer #airplane #aviation #wrightbrothers #avaiationhistory #aeronauticalengineering #avgeek #history #fiftyshades_of_history at National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution

Who doesn’t love Tex Randall? Standing at 47 feet tall and weighing in at 7 tons, this Canyon, Texas, cowboy is celebrating his 60th anniversary. Created by Harry Wheeler in 1959, this tall drink of water has benefited from two restorations, the first in 1987 and a second completed in 2016. We love this dedication to preserving our Panhandle heritage, and we hope Tex watches over Canyon for generations to come. #sadmonkeymedia #canyontx #amarillotx #texaspanhandle #westtexas #texrandall #texasinstagram #texasphotography #downtownamarillo #history #historic #igtexas #sculpture #america #travel #travelgram #illustration #cowboy #icon #iconic #statue #tx at Tex Randall

Credit for “Joniarty” from steam The western front, 1916-1918 The Germans and their messenger dogs. hat looks to be a German Messenger dog, Which they used often to carry an array of things around the battlefield. This is later in the war due to the Stahlhelms.

I love history and I love learning! I am not from Nashville but I have been here almost 20 years and the stories they told all of them need to be put out here for the community and the children. They need to know what happened but they need it first hand. The difference in today and any other black history program is we heard it first hand baby and you had no choice but to be thankful do you hear me! My God I thank you! Good night y’all! If you need me dm me. I love you do you love you?!?? . . . . #nashville #freedomriders #history #amazing #grateful #thankful #blessed #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth

#LateNightHistory — That Time Rough Seas Knocked Off And Put Back A Rattled Seaman - - - The number one fear I imagine for any seaman is being knocked off ship by a thunderous wave and disappearing from sight in the cold and vast ocean never to be seen again. That 𝘢𝘭𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘵 happened to LT Commander Robert W. Goehring, a Coast Guardsman aboard the USS Duane one afternoon sometime in the later half of 1942. The day was as beautiful and sunny as could be, one could argue the weather mirrored that seen only in paradise, except of course when Mother Nature arrived to crash the party. On occasion, one massive wave after another would smack the ship and engulf the compartment where Goehring stood conducting an inspection as he did hundreds of times before being the ships gunnery officer and all. As the vessel tilted in the waves another one surprised him and he recalled, “one minute I was on a wet pitching deck the next I was underwater swimming as hard as I could for the surface.” As he broke through, gasped for air, he noticed the Duane was over 100 yards away and his screams for help were shushed by the whining wind. Miraculously, a lookout on the starboard side of the ship pinpointed his exact location, gave Goehring the stink eye and a 𝘤’𝘮𝘰𝘯 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘢𝘨𝘢𝘪𝘯 𝘓𝘪𝘦𝘶𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘢𝘯𝘵 shrug, and immediately signaled the Captain who did an epic J-turn with the vessel in desperation despite the rough seas. Goehring bobbed through each nightmarish wave thanks to his life jacket that saved his life, but the battle wasn’t over yet. - - - He swallowed water and patiently waited in terror for his sailors to rescue him. They hung over a large cargo net in preparation for Goehring to climb back onboard. Just as the boat taxied next to him, a massive wave lifted and ejected him back onto his ship as a human chain of deckhands made certain he wouldn’t fall off again. Goehring would go on to become a Rear Admiral and never forgot the day his men did everything to save him. - - (Source: Duane Newsletter penned by Al Phaneuf a witness of that day) - - - #History #RoughSeas #CoastGuard #LostAtSea #SeaStories #WWII #Waves #Overboard #Lifesaving #CoastGuardCutter #Badass #Coffee

The male peacock is most well known for it's enormous tail feathers that fan out behind the peacock and can be nearly two meters in length. This colourful display of the peacock is thought to be used for both mating and defence purposes. The male peacock attracts a female to mate with by showing off his array of elaborate feathers, and when the male peacock feels threatened, he will fan his tail out in order to make himself look bigger and therefore try to intimidate approaching predators. . . . . . #travelfreak #castle #travel #sky #photography #indiaclicks #nature #art #love #photooftheday #landscape #christmas #architecture #ig #instagood #beautiful #sea #winter #picoftheday #history #photo #city #travelphotography #sun #like #Ladakh #view #instagram #clouds #bhfyp at Manda Zoo,Jammu
