On the other side of the island lies the village of pomegranates …
A late afternoon with the scarecrow family.
All the weird and the wonderful, what a splendid day it was. At a place that can only be called Bond Island.
Wherever the journey will take us, ahead lies the sea and unknown islands full of promise.

Low Clouds encountering the earthly everyday …
oh, … autumn is near, …
