  16. What a beautiful place, my favorite is the first one.

    I can feel the water trickle through my fingers when I'm holding my hand in the water. It feels nice.

  19. GORGEOUS Pictures, my dear....I LOVE the perspective in them....And seeing the size of the canoes, one really gets a sense of how HUGE those cliffs are......Do take care of that ankle, Mar....Somerimes a sprain takes longer to heal than a 'break'---having had both, that was my experience. I hope you are enjoying the slow-down just a little, my dear.
    I am loving these pictures of your trip and hope there will be LOTS more!

  23. Thanks for pointing out the canoes. I hadn't even noticed them, too busy looking at the rocks and water. I would love to canoe through there. The water looks so calm.
