Friday …

After a crappy, overstressed week at work, and with mum going in to hospital for an op today, I could do with a break. Phil took some fabulous photos of driftwood on the shores of the Indian Ocean so I might be posting a few of those on a Friday to help me relax.
Here's the first.

Glad to hear that your Mum is going to be OK. It's hard when all you can do is sit back, pat a hand and let the docs do their magic - then hope for the best.

Tree limbs in the river have thier own names, either 'snags' or 'sawyers,' depending on their position and behavior. But always called them 'sealheads' because they looked like the furry creatures, swimming along with their heads just above the water.

So glad to hear your Mum's all right. All our best for a speedy recovery for her!

Fantastic "movement" captured in that piece of driftwood!

Many thanks, everyone; Mum really appreciates your lovely comments.

Speedway, you just made me reach for Mark Twain's 'Life on the Mississisppi" and plonk it onto my re-reading pile.

Ms.M. Watch out for some rather odder movement in the driftwood in a future post.

Hi Dive Have been away in the dark depths of PNG without email, decent food or soft loo paper. No not that bad I do exaggerate.....but no internet !!

Hi, Jules! This shot could have been taken in your yard.
Mum's on the mend (gradually), thank you.
Bummer about the internet over there, but I'm pretty sure that living in Paradise more than makes up for it.
