Marine Lab

Today I went back to the marine complex of the University of Miami which is on the island of Key Biscayne, and about 12 km from the main campus. Its name is RSMAS and this is where I went to graduate school. The double door on the left (Walton Smith Commons) opens to our beautiful restaurant for lunch (for faculty, students and everyone else who may come to visit or work in this campus.) In the 60's this campus was simply known as the "Marine Lab." It has grown substantially over the years and has now became one of the leading oceanography institutes of the US. The high point was for us to have long lunches on the terrace overlooking the blue ocean waters, enjoying the blue sky and white clouds and watching sea birds congregating. I will occasionally return here to blog more photos.
