And, singing a strange music, returned beneath the waves.

    Great to see some humor other than ‘Swinging the Lamp.’ I’m still waiting for the next chapter.

    Thanks for catching the typo on my “Honey” poem! My intention was to have the line to read as you indicated. And thanks for stopping by!

    I like how you make a story with your pictures. Great job. I’d like to stumble on something like this too one day. The problem is that sometimes when I stumble on something unique, I don’t realize to take my camera out and think of a story like this. Thanks for sharing this.
