Neither Oola nor I traveled much this summer. Oola lazed about an imaginary pool, and I took my daily walks in the center of one of the most famous and desirable areas in the world — our own SF Bay Area. I like to go to the Emeryville Marina and walk the path from the Bay to the pier to the yacht harbor. I follow the occasional suspicious sea lion and watch those amazing young men stay alive on their sail/boards or lift themselves high into the air with their kite/boards. (I don’t know what the real names of those toys are, but they produce some amazing sport.)
I did have Oola help me scatter some nasturtiums on the Bay for Father’s day, and with a little help from the Mysterious One I just finished this artist book about the experience.
Here are some sample pages:
