A day of rest

Nap Time

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today’s photo comes from four years ago. These critically endangered Hawksbill turtles were chilling on the Punalu’u Black Sand Beach on the Big Island of Hawaii.

I saw this bird flying over one of Copenhagen’s lakes a few summers ago.

Lower South Falls in Silver Falls State Park

Lower South Falls (a waterfall you can walk behind!)

We just got back from spending a couple nights in Portland during spring break. On our way there we went to Silver Falls State Park. The forecast was for rain so the place was empty. The bit of rain that was falling when we arrived stopped so we decided to do part of the Trail of Ten Falls. We did the 6-mile loop section that includes seven of the falls. Two miles into our hike the rain started again, became really heavy, turned to hail, and we proceeded to become drenched. The last few miles weren’t so much fun at the time, but looking back it was a really good time.

Gwangju nature

Stream near Jeungsimsa (증심사)

Along the side of Juengsimsa and the Uijae Museum of Korean Art (의재미술관) runs a lovely, small river near the edge of Mudeungsan National Park. I was too tired to check out the museum, but I hope to go back before my time in Gwangju is over.
