Day 59 (Day 5 of kayak trip), Tuesday, June 26
Sunshine

PICT0130.JPG

When the sun came out, we dragged everything out of the boats to dry and ran up into and around the hills of Cape La Hune.
I bet it felt good to be dry and running.
or would that be running dry?

Great shots of the wild.
Jonathan Riverwalker 11 years ago
it was so great to feel the sun - and to see the sky and the tops of the hills - to be able to lie down on the rocks and feel warmth - jut to be able to look around and see what is around you for a change - and to be dry - sort of - the running did produce a little sweat - especially when we looked down from the top of a 950 foot hill to see my kayak floating away and chris filling with water...
drab chicken [deleted] 11 years ago
haha! i assume you caught it okay?
Jonathan Riverwalker 11 years ago
i actually didnt notice it floating away at first - chris and bri were ahead of rolf and i and the first thing i knew i could see chris running down the mountain like something out of the old cartoons - and in CROCS - we coined the new phrase "extreme croc'ing"

yup everything saved - and a good story for th gran kids...

and urban waterways have their own peculiar dangers and excitement - it will be wild in La Seine when the bateaux mouche go by!

Perry Baggs

late night francois

It's a long story - we made it to Francois - a final day of paddling in the rain - while rolf and i were hiking in the hills around francois, chris and brian had a few beers with perry baggs - it's a long story - but we ended up sleeping aboard his fishing boat "Harvey's dream" - and to thank him we bought him a 40 of cap'n morgan
"We better make sure it's good" he says and so begins a warm and wonderful celebration...

Ex'stream Croc'ing

PICT0556.JPG

How glory knew what my next photo would be i don't know - the last morning in Francois, i woke way before the others and took another couple hundred photos - when he woke up chris suggegsted i ran to the look out and get some shots - i did - as i slowly ambled back down i saw the ferry docking - the story is written on my legs - it's a long story - life is good

12 hours after this photo was taken, i had my first shower in 8 days....
drab chicken [deleted] 11 years ago
well, here's my thought on crocs. see i have two pair. one is the real deal and they are wonderfully comfortable shoes. there's a give to them and a way they hug my feet without being cloying that makes them ideal shoes for a poolside kind of day

the other pair is a knock off. for 6 bucks less i bought a khacki pair of not-crocs that are less than wonderful in every way. they are hard and unforgiving. they are as stiff as starched cardboard. they make farty noises too. worst of all, they rubbed blisters on my feet in places that do not have proper names. not-crocs can really suck and i would cheerfully lend anyone in my world 6 bucks if it made the difference between fake and genuine. CHEERFULLY, i tell you.

all that said, i've a question to beg....

is your croc hard?
Jonathan Riverwalker 11 years ago
ah... my crocs are not crocs - they are claws - but i am happy with them - i only paid a total of six dollars -

i cannot say that my crocs are hard - firm maybe - let's just say
they "get'er done."
drab chicken [deleted] 11 years ago
*laughs
Jonathan Riverwalker 11 years ago
careful - my crocs dont like it when people laugh at them
Glow* 11 years ago
I don't understand what happened to your feet and legs
Jonathan Riverwalker 11 years ago
it's a long story - first off they are so pale because they spent six days hidden in a dry suit under my skirt in a foggy rainy forgotten parcel of the world.

then when the sun came out i went running and jumping and climbing through the heather and gorse and rose bushes and brambles like a crazy man

and to make it worse, on the last day while we waited for the ferry to take us back to civilization, my friend dared me to run up the mountain and back before the ferry arrived - on the way down the mountain, i saw the ferry pulling up - i didnt want to miss my one chance of returning home so i ran down the hill straight through the bushes

that's the short version
Glow* 11 years ago
wow ! and you friend didn't run with you ?are you sure he's really a friend ? Cause he almost left you there ! :D
Jonathan Riverwalker 11 years ago
i got there just in time to jump off the wharf onto the boat - he is in the top 3 or 4 of my friends for sure - imagine what the others are like!!

Can u believe they have signs on the ferry saying it is illegal to sleep on the floor - which i would be cool with if they provided everyone with a plce to sleep - chris and i were more than ready to pay the extra $15 for a bunk - but there were none available -

jill barbour at stanfest

Didn't have enough sleeping in odd places so went straight from Newfoundland to a folk music festival. the folk festival in NS - the Stan Rogers Folk Festival

In my exile of PEI and now Digby, I dont get to keep up with the halifax music scene - acts like Jill Barbour and Catherine McLellan were old hat to a lot of people but brand new to me - yeah Stanfest!

Canso is the coldest corner of Nova Scotia so hooray for Jill for wearing that dress - it kept me warm :D

Great Sunday at stanfest - my intuition is called "Mark and Melissa" - it was raining and we had front row seats in a tent so we stayed and we're wowed by a jam session with 4 mongolian throat singers, a detroit harmonica freak and an applachian claw hammer banjo player

then to the pourhouse for some ales and dancing to downeast celtic played by some upper canadians from hamilton - woof

ED> youll notice i have the order a little screwed up :(
Only about 19 more days to go to catch up! I love when Tuvan throat singers sing with harmonica freaks and clawhammer banjo's! Just too way cool for words... oh, but then these are words aren't they.

Airport rally

Big air rally - 13 planes - woohoo - so they rated their landings - imagine if we did that for all visitors - like tour bus people - as they stepped out into the light al stiff and cramped - hold up cards for how smooth they step down to earth - hold little "getting off the bus" contests

just seems a strange way to welcome people to me - but then what do i know

when i got back to the office john asked me "You spent a whole day at a quilt show?" some things some people aint never gonna understand

i sense something changing... for me, in me, about me, near me - a ratcheting up, a readyiafying, that swelling before the blossom, the in breath before the big push, the woosh before the crack, the boom before the bang - im waking up

the original riverwalker

that's a diggerlog allright

this is i should enter in this month's theme - my favourite part of me

FOR THOSE WHO MISSED IT EARLIER:
he took me on a tour of the river project - RP 07 - where he is working for the summer

the jony riverwalkers return to their roots - walking through the stream he told me all about his work and struggles and life - i am the happiest man in the world - so proud of him and happy for him and got some good pictures of him

we fed some great huge strong horses in a back pasture and watched them run away winnieing their manes trailing behind them

my son is steady - he holds a peice of rebar like he could kill you with it, a shovel like he could cut down a tree with it - he reaches down and runs his fingers through the water - the water is nice - we should go to the powerhouse - want to old man?

our favourite swimming hole - where u climb and swim and climb and squirm and dive and jump and swim - up the canyon - over waterfalls - along slippery ledges - swim climb - to the big waterfall

to the bridge - float back with the current - feet downstream - supper at the dino-diner

and they were once buddies -

and then an evening with the weir fishermen - it is pure beautiful magic and art what they do - sadly the big seiners will have the herring all sucked up soon leaving nothing for the little guy - for the little community...

something very weird and scary happened he says mysteriously - im afraid youll have to wait for the memoirs - wow -

to cool off i visited the most beautiful waterall ive ever seen in this gebiet - as a measure of how wrecked i was by the mysterious experience, i took no photos :(

had lost my pager after a weeekend of chaos but just as i arrived at work Tuesday it was going off - caught second truck for false alarm at Pines resort

shoes everywhere - ha

a half hour later, after waiting outside a restaurant for a photo shoot for ten minutes wouldnt ya know id get a phone call from toronto just as the subject walked outside saying - ive only got a second

but the person calling from toronto didnt understand canadian pay phones or english -so i was shouting directions at the photo shoot subject in english and saying "Ich spreche dir nicht" into cell phone - shooting photos one handed - and

meanwhile all i heard out of phone was

Jonasin. ich vermiss dich schon jonasin
- mehr Geld? - oh Scheisse - ich vermiss dich

[Jonasin i miss you already jonasin -
more money? oh shit - i miss you]

i took him for a quick coastal hike friday morning - i wanted to check if a certain "clifff" was climbable or not - by me a very weak fraidy cat climber - and it was - jony is as uncomfortable as i am hanging off a rock face 50 feet in the air - hahaha

see i took this sunday night - it might even have been real early monday - but i should have had a foto of chris and his family saturday - somehow - gasp! - i didnt take any photos saturday - so u wont get to see chris' beautiful 3 year old daughter zoe

jony and i met everyone in hfx after sleeping in and playing some guitar together - we had a great afternoon of feasting and hanging out and - sometimes i feel these flash reunions seem so short and so pointless - hahaha

it is good i guess, maybe even important to stay in touch... ???

maybe you better give them some time off - and a long soak in a warm bath - or a cool ocean - or maybe let them hold some chocolate

it's funny - fingers - when i used to work outdoors, i watched the weather - but as a writer, i watch my fingers - are they tired - are they quick - do they need to hold a glass of wine for a while - or maybe caress something warm and silky -

ill do anything to keep my fingers happy

well there are a couple other uninspiring shots of the inside of my car - i took some shots to see if i had destroyed my camera after it rocketed off the seat after i stopped short for @#%$@#@# cat
strangely this photo did not reassure me about the camera

the cat did wake me up for few kilometres - late night drives home arent so much fun -
only made this night run cause heike was scheduled to call at 8 am - and she did - her fourth call since leaving a week ago - how crazy would it be for me to go to germany for a couple months?

again not inspired to take any photos outside of work - though im proud of this one - i have little success with soccer but this one turned out awesome if i do say so

would ya like to hear about the gentleman who thought i shouldnt be taking photos from behind the end line? - little too worked up about his son's soccer game if u ask me -but then no one did - oops

didnot manage to wrk today - always seems to be the way when i have tons to do - paralysed - this week i am the paper - with help from karla kelly the worlds best volunteer stringer

all i managed to do today was fill out my visa form, get the photos done and delivered to my "guarantor" - might take a half day soon and run it to hfx - priorities after all -

also looking for work in germany - might like to string for english news sources somehow - anyone have contax? or jobs? just something casual cause i may not be there long or have a work visa...

and .... maybe some of you european flickr people might want to put me up for a night if get to wandering around a bit... course this is all very preliminary right now... and surreal...

today the owner of the laundromat discovered the secret of the magic dryer
:(
ive known for months the timer on number 4 was broken and she'd run all day on a quarter if you never opened the door - i could dry a months worth of laundry for only 1$ - hahaha

but not anymore - this morning when i went in, he was putting in a new timer - time to move on - it's a sign

Day 95, Wednesday, Aug. 1
get up, dress up, stand up, show up

Rough commute

This is stunning. This is your photographic forté.
Oh p.s. I will be in Corsica from September 12 to October 11. I am actually leaving California on September 11 but it takes about 29 hours to get there with the drive from my house to San Francisco, all the airport waits and three planes.
