@Bismark - Handsome boy you have there! My daughter very much loves being in the water, too! Let's get them together in Hualian someday... :D

She's four now, but this is when she was only one year old.

One's ability to be generous is only limited by one's lack of familiarity with being sincere.

Don't talk to me about naval tradition. It's nothing but rum, sodomy and the lash.

Second of all, as in all honeymoons, all is well until it is not. It is until the unexpected happens that you will see all grievances surface -ask anyone in any relationship. The girl can chew with her mouth open, that if you love her, you do not care. If you do not lover her, if her pinkie toe is half an inch deviant, the relationship is doomed. - Icon

Thanks Divea. If they had faces that would sour milk I'd still love them to bits.

Great 'rafting' and he's loving it (oh to be that age again), but where on earth is that taken?
Rocks with edges and all, doesn't look like something that would be built here for kids.
It's raining again here. I'm rising up like a beautiful bubble to the surface.

A wicked wind whips up the hill, a handful of hopeful words.
I was what you would call seriously strung out.

Built by Mother Nature, I'd guess. She builds them so much better than those made by human hands.
If I prioritized the acquisition of wealth above other purposes in life, I might still have come to Taiwan to study Chinese, but I doubt I would have remained here.

Indeed. Its just the crick (as you Murkins would call it.) To me, its the burn. You go to my house, climb up through the forest behind and over the ridge, down the other side and you're there. 20-minute walk or a 5-minute drive. He loves it even more than the swimming pool (and rightly so).

As it should be then. The lighting in that pic just made me feel that it was somehow indoors, or spotlighted.

And Db, yours looks almost - well, the best word is beatific - there.

She isn't really mine, but here she is anyway, my niece.
