Them old webbed toes

I'm a land mammal once again, at least for now. Still in Nanaimo. Got almost all of my chores and resupply items accomplished, and I'm planning on leaving early Monday morning.

It's interesting to contemplate the way that I go back and forth between being a land and water creature. Each element is so different, and requires a completely different set of tools to navigate. I think all of us have this skill, this ability to move freely between one reality and another. It's part of what makes a trip like this such an adventure.

Deep down, I think I'm really a marine mammal. Even on land, my webbed feet give me away.
