#MyODFWTakeover : The Nearshore Rockfish Complex consists of several species of rockfish that live in shallow nearshore waters. The three most common species off of Oregon are China, copper, and quillback rockfish. China rockfish (1st photo) are easy to distinguish due to their dark body with a very obvious yellow stripe that goes across most of the back as well as yellow blotching on the head. Copper rockfish (👉2nd photo) have highly variable color, ranging from dark redish-brown to light pink with copper or yellow mottling on the sides. Quillback rockfish (👉3rd photo) are named for their sharp venomous spines on the dorsal fin. They are brown with yellow to orange mottling especially on the head. The head also has “freckles” covering it.
Clean, green, sleek and minimalist, Apple was everything I imagined it to be, and lustworthy in every geeky way possible. At least, the visitor centre part of Apple Park - Apple Inc's newly opened corporate headquarters - that has a beautiful cafe and showroom where friendly Apple staff show and tell you what makes their employer so cool. Every detail embodies the Apple aesthetic - even the curve of the stairways 😍😍😍

United gave the Dublin bound folks a scare - the fear of being stuck at the airport for the night in Chicago but they found us a ✈️ that was operational - trust me it was a no Dreamliner but - I had the whole row to myself.
So we landed over 2 hours delayed. The immigration posed another stumble and took longer than it shoulda.
I had bought my 🚌 ticket to Belfast online via Translink for 8£ or around $10. Thought may be it was only valid for the booked time but knowing the Irish, they let me on the sparsely-filled 14:35 bus.
The bus drops you off at the main station - Europa I think it’s called. From there I took a 7£ cab to my Airbnb about 2 km east of the city center.
Got a great deal because it was a new listing and asked if they give a discount for a longer stay. It’s bigger than I expected and super clean. It has a little enclosed outdoor area in the back. But the sucky thing is poor WiFi! It only works in the front sitting room. I wanted to work in the kitchen - use table as a desk or fall asleep to a movie in bed. Guess I can’t have everything when on a budget.
I just had a bath - first one since July. And now I think I’ll try to knock myself to 😴.
