All my lunch snacks for today and tomorrow morning. The fish was marvelous.
Too many rocks around? Pick them up and make fences out of them. Problem = solved.
This way to Birkiland!

“It’s not that plotting the whole journey is undesirable.  It’s that it’s impossible.  When you’re at the beginning, don’t obsess about the middle, because the middle is going to look different once you get there.  Just look for a strong beginning and a strong ending, and get moving.”
