Anhydrobiotic

This is a new word I learnt recently. You may wonder why little has been written about Dileas. Well I am pretty handicapped post surgery and certainly unable to turn over and drag her down to the water. However help comes in the form of Ben who is muscular and will be here for the next couple of weeks.

However though shorn from boating adventure, Okinawa still delivers. As the sun goes down I usually go for a swim.

This is a rock just in front of my house that has so far resisted the blast and grunt of decades or maybe millennia of typhoons.

Tonight as I swim out there is a Black Naped Tern just sitting there. This is a rare bird and she seems in no way way scared of me as I masquerade as a Dugong.

These are wild open ocean birds, which makes this photo like er awesome.

If you look down, this is what you see.

Er, 7:30 at night as the sun goes down

I swim back in the dark.

The water is warm

Great joy
