Hey all! We’ve been incredibly busy out here and quite a bit has happened. I witnessed Masato harvest two mud ponds, one very eventful with lots of people in attendance and another one with just Shawn and myself. Went to a few koi farms and purchased some amazing fish and had plenty of food and good times in between. Since I’ve been running behind I plan on making this post mostly pictures. Just to give you a visual day to day.

That concludes the day for Sunday, October 16th. As you can see Masato is a hard worker, harvesting at 7:30 am and continuing the day with another harvest at 6:30 pm. All I had to do was watch and snap pictures and I was tired by then.
