Man and the sea [Watery & Outdoor Wednesday]

@ mirandablue

Why did they make birds so delicate and fine as those sea swallows when the ocean can be so cruel? She is kind and very beautiful. But she can be so cruel and it comes so suddenly and such birds that fly, dipping and hunting, with their small sad voices are made too delicately for the sea.

- from The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway

I really enjoy looking at images of our banca. Looks like the landscape there is pretty rugged just looking at the rocks in the background.

That outrigger must be sturdier than it looks - it looks like one decent wave would swamp it!
