Get Off My Lawn

After a weekend of science communication stuff, brilliantly directed by Val Jamieson and Rowan Hooper from New Scientist, we have a evening at the house.

We eat food prepared by Ishigaki san and Koda san who are my best friends.

We go for a late evening sail. People swim. There is one note of discord because my wonderful beaches have people on them. This is very unusual and we investigate. Some people are fishermen, which in fact is not unusual at all. The  others are amazing. Two women from the mainland who have built a kiln in Dead Man’s Gulch and who are firing pottery overnight on the beach. They are charming, we have the best time.

This makes everyone very excited.\

On the walk back to the house one of the fisher folk reels in a massive fish.
