Water seems to dominate my work-days. Not that I mind.
This morning, after fifteen minutes, I realised that there had been a little miscommunication and I was at the pick-up point an hour earlier than I needed to be.
I decided to while the time by taking photos.
I've heard of a parliament of owls - but a committee of seabirds?
... the view to my left
... the view to my right
... the view straight ahead
... but the best view of all - the view behind. Coffee to go. A large, double, flat white please.
I happened to have an hour to spare the very morning an entrepreneur decided to set up coffee-to-go from the back of his car at the car park where I wait for my ride to work. It was his first morning of a fortnight's trial run. When I explained that I didn't have any money on me, he said I could bring him the money tomorrow morning.
And then he gave me my American Sentence for the day:
"I find that on the whole coffee drinkers are very honest people."
