Weird Berries.





There are many strange things about living in a country you didn't grow up in, and in particular a state like California which is possibly as different from the north of England as you can get. I often come across things that to the homegrown Californian barely raise an eyebrow, but even they must think these peculiar and bizarre growths I saw on the palm tree on the way to work are pretty insane. They look like moon fruit or alien pods. They certainly don't have these in Manchester city centre.

Funny, because I wrote something similar in my travel journal when I lived in the U.K.... Things I took for granted in Los Angeles, were totally non-existent in Newquay, Wales, or even London.

Maria told me about your blog, so I had to take a look, hope you don't mind. Think it's really great, love the imagery on it! Have a gander at mine, tell me what you think.

If you ever come across any scientific prints of sea mammals or sharks, let me know, thinking of starting a collection

Talk to you later.
