Roman

Elfin Forest

Yesterday's walk:


I met a couple on the walk as I was just starting out on the boardwalk. Middle-aged or older, with hats for shade, sturdy clothes and shoes. Well, actually, it's the couple you see most often in the slideshow above. The man came by and asked, "Have you seen anything extraordinary?" He had a British accent.

"It's all extraordinary," I said.

He gave me a disbelieving look and said, "You need another drink." We continued on our way but kept passing each other as one or another of us would stop to look at something. I noticed the two of them bending over to look closely at a plant and I came by and said, "You probably know what you're looking at".

The man said something to the effect that there is no good spoiling a story with the truth.
