Two of the nuttiest street people in Merced. Gentle souls, the one behind the tree proclaiming Christ as he is called to do, and the other proclaiming only to himself what he is called to proclaim.

Never trusted electronic navigation so I carry a sextant and the old skool charts in various forms on long long passages. Never know when they may come in handy.

McHale,
Could it be cochineal? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cochineal

The lichen it's on looks like Umbillicaria, ...if that helps.

I remember, when I was a kid, seeing a picture in the encyclopedia of one of these in action, flying out of a rubber raft. Probably the same photo on the sign.

Sempervirens, from what I can find out, it's a different insect - color is even different. This one is much more of an orange than a crimson.

I, for one, am glad Guido's charts account for the, um, curvature of the earth.

My guess is clover mite. One would need a much better pic to see positive ID characteristics.

Thanks. I'll look up Clover Mite - yikes! Well, I looked up the mites and the red insect I saw is about 3 times bigger than the clover mite - it's about the size of a smallish tick.

Guido, is it a coincidence or is the geographer in me inherently prurient
to think that the spot on the map where Capt Cook ran aground on the Great
Barrier Reef of some significance in the design of your wearable chart?

There you go again Reilly, making me look up new words. Is it true, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line? And why did they call them Limeys when lemon was a better antiscorbutic solution for scurvy? I guess "bloody Lemoneys" just doesn't make it in the pub?

Sometimes, it is a good idea to pick up a couple extra crew when planning a long passage and you just have to take what's available.
