Photo Friday: to oktapodi, with love

As we gear up to celebrate Valentine's Day this weekend, I though it was a good time to give some love to the unsung hero of this blog: the tireless, unflaggingly cheerful oktapodi. Our version of The Roaming Gnome, this humble bath toy has accompanied us across several continents, to festivals, and on roadtrips, never the worse for wear and always maintaining that goodnatured grin. Here, then, is a tribute to our favorite cephalopod:
