"It brimmed and thrummed like rising yeast"

Very good Martina!
Although image and text travel on separated way, the plant that sprouts from your stones "like rising yeast" seems to me a dwarf or lilliput succulent plant, also family of cactus. I have some photos very seemed to your one. This similarity surprises me!
Outstanding Martina:). Although Sundays I prefer to sail that to work in the posts, let me try someting about "rising yeast".

Yes, it is a sedum, familiy of crassulaceae. In German it is called what in Spanish might be "la gallina grasa". I really like photographing antagonims ie. stone vs. vegetation, concrete vs. sea ;-).
I thought I would like to post something maritim or foody - both not subjects that occur too often to me - and perhaps it is interesting for you seeing how I, the non-sailer, non-cook, takes this. Let's see with what I can come up ... hope you had a nice day today. And a very nice day tomorrow going sailing - no stress about posting photos with las gallinas grasas ;-)
