The Kraken in His Natural Environment

If you had a chance to read my post from friday, then the title of this post will make sense :-)

The Kraken: Probably no legendary sea monster was as horrifying as the Kraken. According to stories this huge, many armed, creature could reach as high as the top of a sailing ship's main mast. A kraken would attack a ship by wrapping their arms around the hull and capsizing it. The crew would drown or be eaten by the monster. What's amazing about the kraken stories is that, of all the sea monster tales we have, we have the best evidence that this creature was based on something real.....

....On something LOUD....something BOSSY....something JIMMY!

Like most of the country, we've been having ridiculously hot weather. Jimmy and Wilson don't like to go out unless it is going to involve watersports. So, whenever possible, I try to find a water source on our walks. By this time in a hot summer, many favorite pools have gone dry, or even worse, stagnant. This was taken at our last fresh spot that's still a fairly close walk. I am afraid that soon enough it won't even be deep enough for a Cardigan!

Lots more water-themed photos on their way........


  1. Ha! When first brought Cardi Cotton home and experienced her frapping....we shouted, "Release the Cotton!" and away she went! Scary monster too!

  2. Those eyes! Must be a Kraken! :)
