Big Sur Jan 2015

We went up to Santa Cruz for the weekend to try and find a place for Sara - she's starting a post-doc up there soon. We drove through Big Sur on the way back. I had my new 300 f4 af lens and had fun shooting the elephant seals in San Simeon. Full album here {there's a sequence of a seal flipping sand that is kinda cool}.

lots of sleeping going on

some exhaling -> blowing sand

Yogurt is an anti-depressant

So many interesting tidbits in the Radiolab story 'gut feelings.' The weight of all of the bacteria in our body is equivalent to the weight of our brains (3 lb). The bacteria that convert milk to yogurt, when they reach our stomachs, can send signals through our nerves to our brains that act as anti-depressants! Someone did a test on mice, "They never panic, they never burn out, and they never fall into despair." They also referenced an article in PNAS, "They're talking about treating psychological disorders with yogurt." Fascinating. Plus yogurt tastes good.
