"Ocean Blue" kanji

By the way, here are those kanji I was talking about.

umi (ocean/sea):
a less stylistic umi:

and aoi (blue) (also pronounced "sei", but then it means "young"):

These are some of my favorite kanji, in a purely aesthetic sense. (also I find them easy to remember :-)

Great name, Mel! And very pretty kanji - I really, really like the looks of the "aoi" one, but I'll have to get you or Andrew to pronounce it for me - I don't know what to do with all those vowels! :)

I hope you had a great trip this weekend!

p.s. of course people are reading your blog even when you're not writing in it - speaking for myself, at least, checking other people's blogs is a great break (procrastination technique?) from real work. :)

It is hard to visualize fancy designs knowing that you have only thin strips of boards, but I would love to play the ideas myself.
Namako or Nameko? Either is possible in Japanese, but I would say that neither is very poetic or flattering for you precious work of labor. (Muahaha to you, too!!) “Ocean Blue” sounds great! The kanji looks good, too! I am glad that I did not suggest “Seifu” (Ocean Breeze)! I saw the same name in a phermacy the the other day.
Looking forward to the pictures of your recent trip near Vancouver Island up soon!!
