Sea-horses.

Over the weekend I SUP'ed in the harbor. It contains three buoy's and I usually hang out by the third one, furthest away from these cement pylons=weakest wave. Despite the 30ft swells further up the coast the ripples in to the harbor didn't even make it to buoy #3. So I moved up to #2 and had it all to myself, until I was joined by a woman in a one man canoe (now there's an oxymoron). We paddled out and rode in on the small stuff with clock work regularity, until the wind picked up and spoiled everything. Though all was not lost as I went home and took a big fat nap-excellent Sunday behavior.

While I was on my two wheels I ran into these beautiful four leggeds.

Now here's something you don't see that everyday.....

I spy with my little eye something beginning with S.

What's not to love about yellow bamboo with green stripes?!

And finally the last few days has seen the Island weather a bit moody. There's no doubt it's easier to handle such meteorological petulance when the default is a sunny disposition.

I like your horses, they are such beautiful animals. I have a wonderful poem about horses that I might use now that you make me think of it. Have a fine 2010. You are off to a good start. I can't believe it is January 21st already.

My word verification is "outie". I've always liked outies.

Glad to see you're following in your Ma's footsteps and enjoying the odd siesta or three :-) "Listen to the body" says my consultant and his words ring in my ears every afternoon about 1.00p.m.

I'm not sure you should be "outieing" at your age Bill - I'm having a smidgeon of "barct".
