For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: plump. This turtle kinetic sculpture is not that plump….
Taken Saturday, at the water part of the Kinetic Sculpture Race. It is all human powered and they have to go out in the cold water, currently around 52 degrees F. Brrrrr. The teams have a brake test down Monroe Street first and then line up to head for the water. The Coast Guard stands ready and various kayaks and sailboats are there. They have to get to a destination and bring back the superhero(ine) mask!
The theme this year is mediocre superhero(ine)s. Lots of glitter and capes and boots. The costumes are wonderful!
To the women and men who are speaking up, there is nothing mediocre about your heroism.
On Hawaii we went to a park and saw green turtles. They are born about 1000 miles away on a different island. They travel in the sea and now come to Hawaii to rest. The ones who rest on the beaches are 20 to 140 pounds. As mature adults, they will be 200 to 400 pounds and live back in the sea.
We both have zoom lenses. We are not supposed to go closer than 20 feet.
These are juveniles, we read, up to 140 pounds. They come on shore now that they are protected, to rest. The adults are 200-400 pounds. It is hard to imagine how large the adults are. We are not to go within 2 car lengths — hooray for a zoom lens.
I am diving into my Saturday like this turtle, a breath of air and then paddle down into the depths, hi to the local fish and other fauna and look, lovely places to paddle and hide. I am puttering, wondering, not directed, no list, I might wander by and do laundry but some of the day I will just revel in sloth…. I hope you get lazy time, down time, undirected time, unscheduled time, dream time, time to expand and paddle around and float in the sea of dreams…..happy Saturday.
