This barrier is made of bamboo that has pretty much escaped and grown all around the house and protects people from the world. There is space inside the property but I don't think there is much. The picture to the left shows the front of the property. The house peeks out between the bamboo and the conifer. I go by there every so often and I have no idea how large the house is or its size due to the bamboo and conifer but I do know the bamboo kind of escaped and keeps trying to take over the block.
We continued down the street to the main road and headed back to my parents' place. On the way, we stumbled across a beautiful sculpture.
The above photo is a shot of the harbor at low tide The picture was taken just before we turned up the street to my parents' place. The birds are having a great time looking for food. Its easier to dig in the mud at low tide.
I'll post more pictures as I get them. In a couple days, I'm heading off to Hawaii for a week to enjoy some time off and to present at an educational technology conference. I can hardly wait.
