I went for a walk in the Bamboo Forest this morning. The arrival of Spring and the lovely weather means that by about 11am, the whole place is jam packed. I try to go early these days.
As I made my way along the part of the path that runs by the river, I saw this in the distance.
At first I thought I was hallucinating. Nobody else seemed to notice the whale on the river bank. I went a bit closer.
For a few terrifying seconds, I thought it was a real whale. Where had it come from? It hadn’t been there yesterday.
“Whale?” I asked a little old lady who had stopped to stare at me.
“Big-uh, big-uh!” she answered, smiling and nodding. I wasn’t sure if meant the whale or me. 😀
