Yes, I am doing some catching up.
|First of all we would like to offer a toast to all our friends and family. |
May 2015 be a great year for each and every one of you.
May it be filled with love, joy, health, laughter and new adventures.
Happy New Year!
This was the bridge over Copano Bay on our way to the "Big Tree". It always makes me nervous when they are building a new bridge next to the one I am on. Is there a time limit before the old one falls into the bay? The mission today is to the see the "Big Tree" so we held our breaths and kept going.
|The winding road just before reaching the "Big Tree". It is |
almost like the other trees form an honor guard.

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but on thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
