I had taken my things out of the car and cleaned the manhole off and then
decided it was too hot to do a drawing .(This was before I had bought a
shade umbrella) Then before I could pack back up ,a woman brought me a
cold drink so I had to do the drawing as I would feel wrong to accept the
drink and then just walk away. So thanks to her we have this drawing, though
it was almost my last as it was a scorcher.

A whale with a scope ( What do you call that thing he is holding?) I drew
this before taking the ferry out to Kinkazan island. The island has lots
of monkeys and deer. This area used to be famous for whaling.

Scuba diving and snorkeling has given me the chance to see lots of fish
in various environments- lakes, rivers,
and oceans. Such a beautiful experience. Fortunately a local came by and
told me what kind of fish they have in the area rivers.

I thought this was a dolphin playing with a ball and then figured out it
was an ancient (dinosaur) dolphin eating some sea creature.

Some type of trees or vegetation. I did this one before church. I go back

to keep the Sabbath?

a Japanese style warehouse behind the decorations..
