|Creative and captivating|
|An unbelievable true story told without self-pity|
|I didn't realize until I was almost finished |
that this book is based on a true story,
involving one of the most famous artists
in Japanese history.
I'm not sure what this is, growing up from a submerged branch...
...but it's really cool-looking...
|(some kind of chestnut?)|
...and it attracted some iridescently psychedelic insects.
|It's really too bad I couldn't capture the iridescence on these--I've never seen anything like 'em.|
Sunday, Miss Chef joined me for a second trip up and down the Catawba. She's been wanting to try those paddleboards out!
I got a kayak, but we stopped to swim in the river for a little bit, and I tried the paddleboard too. It's harder than it looks! I managed to stand up and get down a couple of times without falling, and paddled in circles for a few minutes. But I think I'll stick to my kayaks. Miss Chef, on the other hand, may be a paddleboard convert.
Miss Chef declared this omelette better...not perfect by a long shot, but better. Notice she made me eat vegetables for breakfast? I may be regretting all these weekends together, if this keeps up!
