Nevertheless the rest of us enjoyed our sojourn. Josie, from Milwaukee, loves to see the ocean. Even though I see it every day from my windows and on my walks with the dogs, I am still awed by it myself. There it is, minding its own business, a whole other world right beside us. We are trying to ruin it with our waste, killing the inhabitants and their food supply. It does what it can and will probably survive us human beings in the end. Meanwhile we will destroy whatever is within our considerable power, just as all extinct species have done. We all go down hard, and we take a lot of others with us. It's the way of the world.
