Dear Betty, I can smell that sea and feel the wind on my face...we're not allowed as far as the sea yet, the first easing of the lockdown might come after the 28th of May.
Stay safe. ♥nic

Lovely photos. That bridge is fascinating :)

A great selection there. That bridge is really spectacular and forms a great frame for the mountain, I wonder if the designer created it with that intention.

Interesting collection of photos! I've come face to face with enormous eels while snorkeling in the Red Sea. Fortunately they weren't at all interested in me, like I was of them.

Your pictures are just amazing! I love the one with the old train most.
And the pic of the road through the wood reminds me a bit on Lord of the Rings, part 1, when the hobbits first met the Nazgul :-) So great!
Greetings from Babsy

I was wondering the same as John about the design of the bridge both framing and echoing the shape and colour of the mountain. The toilet sign was amusing too. I am appreciating your captions which are teaching me the names of the unique vegetation. Considering NZ is right next door, It's crazy that I know very little about the place. I look forward to learning more from your blogs.
