Things have been rather sleepy-calm over the past couple of days. I managed to leave home without any art supplies! Argh! Not a great way to start a trip. After four days we managed to find a few things at extreme prices. This morning I unwrapped the sketchbook, pencils, and watercolor set and played. Off the balcony is a large Hala tree. I’m really grabbed by the bark texture and lines. The spice finches continue to bring more dried leaf material, possibly building a nest inside the nooks and crannies of the fronds. More snorkeling today if the winds remain calm.
