Last friday was Scripps Day, which is a day (heh) to celebrate all things Scripps. Among other things, this meant that the SIO pier was open for to the public. I along with the rest of the group I work with (well, those present) went to check it out. The weather could not have been more perfect!<br /><img src="" /></a><br />The above photo shows most of SIO, the building I work in is underneath (visually in the image) the large crane.<br /><br />This next view is looking south (ish) toward the rest of La Jolla (my hometown).<br /><img src="" /></a><br />The aquarium was also open for viewing.<br /><img src="" /><br /><img src="" /><br /><br />Here are some more pictures if you aren't already convinced that La Jolla and Scripps is awesome.<br /><img src="" /><br /><img src="" /><br /><img src="" /><br />If you are interested in what I'm actually doing at SIO (on not Scripps Day), it involves collecting all the data I can find from a German icebreaker, RV Polarstern</a>. Hopefully it will go online soon.<br />That is all for now I guess.<br />-Barna</p>
