… after several days of trying to get online… The WiFi in this wilderness here is wobbly, hence the silence.
Phone network I haven’t had since I got to the island.
But… day 4 was the day I took my camera down. I went through my air in a breeze, which I guess is understandable. But I got some nice pictures. And I missed about 1.000.

It would’ve been a great day to go out shooting, but I haven’t really been feeling all that well. I guess the structural 4-5 hour nights of sleep are finally catching up with me. Tonight’s early to bed. For real.
In the mean time you’ll just have to settle with some more pet-images. They’re an easy subject/target. And like me they’re having a lovely lazy Sunday.
There’s some weird interaction going on between cat and turtle, though. Or… It’s more one-directional interaction.

And the other cat just doesn’t care. He sleeps and sleeps, and sleeps, and eats, and sleeps, and sleeps…

Two houses to clean… *sighs* I tend to think I’m quite a cleaned-up and neat person, but when it comes to cleaning house…
The creature from the green lagoon is now also under my care. It’s her place which needs some cleaning up today…
