Working so much that the desire to make cloth has slipped away from me for the time being. I'm too exhausted to think creatively in that direction.
Sunday morning offered a little time off and the chance to make a short voyage with Nilo and a couple of friends to the other side of the Golfo Dulce by lancha.
We got lucky! On the outward trip we saw many manta rays, jumping into the air and swimming gracefully at the surface of the water. Fascinating! On the return journey, a group of dolphins right beside the boat.
Nilo: self portrait.
I need to remember, sometimes, it's important to do nothing.
A pirate ship! It's amazing what you see when you're looking!
Grace, the images below are of octopus egg sacs. Karin told me. I'm so excited by this fact. I've collected more since I posted about the first one (when I still thought it was some kind of shell). Unfortunately, most are broken. But I'm delighted with the thought of all of those baby octopi that must be pulsing through the Golfo Dulce right now! :)
Not so much with the "hilos de oro" ("golden threads") jellyfish that stung us this morning!
