Jamaica to USA

Jamaica and USA, 22 September 2016

.

This is from a flight from Montego Bay, Jamaica to Charleston, South Carolina.  A later flight to Los Angeles was at night and I didn’t take any photographs on that one.

Charleston in the distance.

When we got to Charleston, we had to wait for maybe hours in a long security queue while the time to catch the next flight faded away.  A German couple near us tried to jump the queue to where some friends of theirs were, but they were seen by officials and sent to the very last place in the line.

When I got to LA and picked up a rental car near the airport, I had to return to get the rental company to show me how to get the drivers seat back up.  I had found a control to recline it but had gone too far and that control didn’t put it back up(!).  There was a different control in a different location for that.

Then when I got onto the crowded freeway (at night) I found that the side mirrors were electronic and I couldn’t tell how far away other cars were.  That made changing lanes quite freaky.  Still, we got where we needed to go without incident.

.

I also spent a fair amount of time this week dealing with corrupted images and backups. When I came to start considering my California images for processing, I found I had 300 corrupted and unusable images.  My backup to the Cloud is supposed to go back to 2017 when I started Cloud backup but the relevant backup only went back to May which must be when I had a motherboard change.  My local backup to a Drobo was no good because only have enough space to retain recent backups.  But I do have an old backup to disk from 2017.  At first that seemed inaccessible but I eventually retrieved the files I needed from it.  This just goes to show the value of the old adage that you should always have three separate backups.

We visited the Appleton Rum Refinery.  Appleton rum dates to 1749.  It is the oldest Jamaican rum producer and the second oldest in the Caribbean, and remains Jamaica’s leading rum.

.

Appleton Estate Rum, Architecture, Jamaica, Landscape, Nature, Pelicans, Photography, seascape, Street photography, Travel, Treasure Beach, Wildlife

I’m not sure how old what we see is.  It’s clearly not new but doesn’t date back to 1749.  Since the rum is based on sugar, grown on the estate, there would have been a close association with slavery in the eighteenth century.  I suspect that tourists, on their expensive estate tour, don’t have their attention drawn to this.

Successive still stages:  Low vine, high vine and rum.

What I can read of the plaque says:  “Pot Still:  This is essentially a kettle used in small scale batch production.  Steam is applied to the pot and the vapour given off is condensed and collected in three separate containers.”  The last paragraph is illegible.
