Howdy gang, me again, I hope everyone is feeling good today, not sick or tired or feeling depressed. today I am writting to you about learning a new language.
I have been meandering and playing around with learning chinese. I have several apps on my android and a few books helping to do this. what is interesting about this language is how the word structures are just so different.
example, You and I would say, I went to the library yesterday at something o clock, they say it I, yesterday, to the library, at o clock went, something like this, or it is I yesterday, at o clock to the library went, not sure, I am finding it hard to learn. it is a slow process for me. after a year and a half trying to learn it I still cant speak hardly any of it.
I am curious have any of you tried to learn chinese, or korean or some language that is quite different from english or your native language? What helped you to learn it andwhat problems have you had? what is really neat is if you google translate english into chinese it comes up and all you have to do is type your sentence into the box andit translates it into tradition or simplifed characters and I use my pleco camara to translate to pinyin. really cool.
today it is so cold out and light dusting of snow I am like stuck in the house, not feeling well either, kind of feel like I am getting a sinus infection, hopfully just my normal allergies bothering me. So I am looking at my grammar and reading and writting chinese text books I just got a couple of days ago.
anyway here aer some more pictures for you to enjoy.

ocracoke, look at all those birds around that ship, I used a 600 mm sigma long lens for these shots of ships
great shots you can even see the crew, while I was watching these guys a dolphin went buy close to shore
here is some more,
cormorant back of fatty resturant in buxton, at a salt water marsh that leads to the sound,
this guy I got alot of shots of, behind fattys resturant again, (if you want real honest to goodness ice cream their herseys ice cream is the bomb.)
ah what is over there, hark, it is my imagination running wild again invisioning me living by this lighthouse where I plant a giant red wood 100 feet from it and watch it grow to full maturity and die in God’s new world where death and sin and wickedness and property taxes and man made oppression will be gone. actually your laughing at me arnt you?
sunrise over the atlantic ocean, very pretty,
sunrise behind the lighthouse view motel, really nice motel you get a nice clean room at a reasonable price off season.
remember this plant from past posts? this was behind the falcon motel which is now in disrepair and being sold (the fence is damage by thepool and the pool was full of debris and stuff) now look at it after hurricane matthew
poor plant was so pretty now it is destroyed from the salt water flooding.
we fished on this soundside peir we were actually on our way to the aquarium when we came across this (and we also came across the visitor center for alligator river refuge and pea island refuge and allthe cool stuff they had inthere plus a gift shop which I naturally bought some pretty things there ) I did not catch anything but it allowed my husband to show me how to cast and now when something has the bait stuff like that.
my hubby fishing ocracoke island. this is all for now.

this tree is grafted on what appeard to be a viburnum, the leaves at the bottom were bigger, more rough and oblong/elliptical. the leaves at the top are about 2 inches wide slight wider and same length wise. the bark is smooth and greyish, and I have tried and tried looking in my books on the net, it almost made me think of red bud then I looked again and it reminded me of a vine leaf possibly gooseberry or something else, any ideas? thanks.
