Beautiful.

camping in the redwoods




This magical place is about 4.5 miles from Pescadero.

According to Native American lore, butano means “a gathering place for friendly visits.”
Yes indeed!




Home of the banana slug.

guardian of children



This is one of the most loved deities in Japan.
His statues are a common sight, especially by roadsides and in graveyards. Traditionally, he is seen as the guardian of children, particularly children who died before their parents. 













All photos taken by my dear friend F.
Thank you!

crazy landscape

Socotra or Soqotra (Arabic سُقُطْرَى ; Suquṭra) is a small archipelago of four islands in the Indian Ocean.
Part of Yemen.
Amazing.
