A weekend with our grandchildren, such a blessing

Maddie, Owen, Cole, Avery came to visit last weekend.  What fun we had, we had a Plan of Action and did everything.  From visiting the animals a Marshalls Farm Stand, to having treats at Orange Leaf.  We started on Saturday with a great big breakfast and off to Marshalls, Mile Marker’s Pool, by the way is fabulous, to Stage Fort Park, hiking Tablet Rock, swimming at Half Moon Beach, back to Papa and Nonnie’s house for a big cookout and then a movie, The Jungle Book.  The love of grandchildren is something you cannot put into words.  Here a couple of photos.

On Monday Sept 12th, Tom Costello from NBC Nightly News visited Ocean Alliance to shoot a story on SnotBot.

Mr. Costello was accompanied by his producer Jay Blackman, a videographer, and soundman. The weather was absolutely beautiful and the NBC team were on site from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm.

Our CEO and chief SnotBot pilot Iain Kerr was interviewed and filmed flying SnotBot. Understanding the unique perspective of a drone, he offered to shoot some video of Mr. Costello for the news story with SnotBot. NBC are now heading to interview Dr. Scott Baker at Oregon State University, who is analyzing SnotBot samples from our most recent expedition to Alaska.
