At the Mary Baker Eddy Library (Boston, MA) there’s a 3-story glass globe with a walkway for an equator.  The craftsmanship of the stained glass is impressive, but the acoustics inside of this 30 foot glass sphere are astounding, enabling visitors to effortlessly hear whispers from one side to the other.

Cannon Beach, OR.  Got up at 4am to catch low tide. Aside from a few birds, the only other early-risers were a couple bucket-carrying gents who were collecting fresh mussels. It was a breathtaking morning, worth every second of sacrificed sleep.
