Pineapples

At this time of year, Okinawa is awash with pineapples. They are small and very sweet.

They cost 100 yen each – nothing.

There are other things in season.

Do you know what they are? Dugong eggs?

It has been a sad day for me, but I go down to the boatyard because another typhoon is coming to call. Everything has to be lashed to something.

Probably not mega but still strong stuff.

To my delight, the center plate is fully up.

May not mean much to you.

I have almost never seen Kiyuna san working. When does he do it? During the day, he swans around on his Harley telling jokes. I think he only really works at night.

New Center plate winch. I call her Hippo. Thank you Kiyuna san.

It is going to rain like crazy this weekend. I try pitifully to reduce the flooding in the boat.

I have no illusion that this will keep out the water, but at least I tried.
