University is winding down for another academic year which means I’m heading off for a holiday. I don't know about you but it feels like this winter has been never-ending.

Just a couple of days ago, a co-worker brought the book The
the submerged sculptures of Jason Decaires Taylor to my attention. Loved it! Underwater Museum
It’s a surreal but amazing look at the work of this artist who casts life-size human models (using real people) to create sculptural pieces that he then sinks off the coast of
Grenada in the Caribbean and various places along the coasts of . It blends an artistic statement with a way
to encourage reef development. The three
essays at the front of the book, one by the artist himself, Carlo McCormick an
art critic and curator and finally, from a scientist, Helen Scales about reef conservation and the importance of healthy reefs to the environment offers

The book showcases a great blending of art and science. Check out the website to find out more about the artist and the project. I think anyone would find this fascinating to peruse.
And, guess where I’m going? Don’t say
. In looking for an off-the-beaten-track spring
adventure this year we chose Mexico . I love how serendipity plays out sometimes. To find out about this underwater museum just
before I go is just too auspicious and I’ll be making the most of this
I’ll be back in May and will start posting again in the middle of the month.
