PHeymont ·
An ancient Roman vessel carrying 3000 jars of garum, the Roman fish sauce that was found on nearly every Roman table as a condiment and source of salt, has been found in 200 meters of water off the coast of northeastern Liguria. The 25-meter-long ship is one of only five Roman "deep sea" vessels ever found in the Mediterranean. Archaeologists first started looking for it after fishermen brought up fragments of clay jars in the area in 2012. They were recognized as a type that was used only...

Kirsten, great piece! I had very similar thoughts when I saw the Salmon swimming upstream in Alaska. While it was truly an amazing sight, the Salmon were so beat up it definitely brought out mixed emotions.

We were traveling by boat along the northwest coast between Bella Bella and Prince Rupert. The company that ran our charter was awesome - Mothership Adventures . I highly recommend them.

Peggy's Cove is a beautiful place, even when it's not sunny. The piper sounds even better in the fog.

Maybe mist is what it takes to makes the pipes sound less grating.\

Oh my goodness...I would be proud to capture even one of these photos and you captured the kingfishers so many times!! My favorite is the kingfisher shaking the fish and the water spraying out; what a fantastic collection of photos!

I love the sights, the sounds, the colours and - yes - the smells of a market. Finding a new fruit or vegetable is amazing. Usually in a country I'm visiting. I found your husbands likings so funny. I read it to my wife but I couldn't finish a sentence for laughing ! Maybe he's a Monty Python fan ?

Great visit to a great market! I try to get to the Pike's Place market almost every time I visit Seattle. You are right, Samantha, there's nothing magical about the fish being thrown around.
