The Boy Stood on the Burning Deck

All these photos were taken either in the kitchen or from the deck.

I go down to the Chelsea Drug Store to buy an octopus. Great excitement as a boat has just come in, heavily laden with anchovy, sardine things. There are tons and the pharmacists are selling big bags for 500 yen.  They are really fresh.  I grill them and eat them with olive oil and lemon. A classic.

Before I eat them. Actually there was no way I could eat all of them. I think I will make an offering to Poseidon.

People come from all over the world and pay trillions of, er maybe millions or probably more like thousands of yen, to go diving in front of my house.

I dived, I dove? I never know which.

What an amazing day!

Tomorrow, I will try to launch the boat. There may well be local resistance of the fisherman ilk. Am I man enough?
